Week of October 2 - 6

 We had a great week last week! On Monday, the children had their first earthquake drill! They did a wonderful job with the drill and we feel they are prepared for a real emergency. On Tuesday, we had Grade 10 students visit from Vancouver College! They came to teach us more about our Archdiocesean theme, Care for Everyone in our Common Home. They led activities and we learned a lot! Thank you for all the support you to continue to give to the class and the school! A special thank you goes out to the many parents that were able to join us for a very successful Walk-a-thon! The children, albeit tired at the end, had a wonderful time walking with you and raising money for our school! 


We're looking forward to another fantastic week and the start of a new month!
