This week we performed the show “Annie Jr.”. Congratulations to everyone on four great performances. Thank you to Mr. Graham for directing the play, the parents who made the costumes, all the teachers for their hard work and all the people who made baked goods for the bake sale. See a few pictures below. All our play pictures will soon be added to the Photos section of our website.


Immaculate Heart of Mary School

The girl's soccer team played in a tournament last weekend at Sacred Heart. The girls played very well. Here are a few pictures and video clips...

On Monday Bethany Whelan and Nicole Keeping were mock councillors at a council meeting for Municipal Awareness week. The grade 6 students also wrote essays about what they would do if they were mayor for a day.

Also on Monday, Abigail Companion attended an information session on composting for our school. We are starting a composting program in the next few weeks.

This week our students got some new outdoor play equipment. We now have dodge balls, soccer balls, hula hoops and skipping ropes for taking outside at lunch.

This weekend is a long weekend. We hope everyone enjoys the break!
