The last week of school was very busy! The junior high students had their last exam on Monday and then went to Mrs. King’s cabin for a field trip. Thank you to Mrs. King, Mr. King, Mr. Drew Nadon, Mr. Hancock and Mrs. McCarthy for making it such a great day!

On Monday Mrs. Foley and Mrs. McCarthy hosted the annual elementary school spelling bee. The whole school wore black and yellow to support our spellers. The winner in grade four was Amna Ahmad, in grade five it was Samuel Michael and in grade six the winner was William Bruce-Robertson.

On Tuesday we had our sports day, little green thumbs celebration and end of year variety show. The junior high class and Mrs. McCarthy organized a lot of fun activities for all the students to do outside.  The little green thumbs celebration included a salad, cake and milk for the entire school. We enjoyed our treats in the greenhouse and outdoor classroom.

School officially closed on Wednesday at lunch time. In the morning we had our end of school Mass with Father Hynes and then our end of year awards assembly and photo slideshow.

Last week we thanked our volunteers for helping our school yard lawn and garden. We would also like to thank Norm Hindy for his help as well.

On Thursday we hosted our end of year volunteer breakfast. Thank you to everyone who donated their time and talents to our school this year!

Also, in our science fair winners list Ryan Murphy won a medal for his science fair project.

We are still accepting registrations for junior kindergarten and our full day kindergarten and English and French Immersion for September 2014. In addition, we are offering a grade 7 late French Immersion program in September. Please call the school for more information.
