ClassroomEvents Notes

 

 

 

Just a reminder to all parents/guardians, the school bell rings at 8:45, please have your children to school on time.



Dear Parents and Guardians,

 

We are have quickly approached another important season of the Church year.  Alongside parents, who are the primary educators of their children in this area, our plans at school are to encourage prayer, fasting and almsgiving. 

 

As Catholics, we are encouraged to share what we have with others, to respect our neighbours and ourselves and to assist to those less fortunate. By sharing ourselves and helping those around us, we are, in essence, practising STEWARDSHIP.


 

In fact, “STEWARDSHIP” reaches far beyond financial contribution and encourages Catholics to live their lives as disciples of Jesus. Equipped with this knowledge, we have the power to change how we understand and live out our lives, beginning a life-long process of sharing our gifts of time, talent and treasure out of gratitude, not our of obligation. Living our baptismal promises becomes the motivational force behind our actions.

 

In our school community, we encounter many examples of STEWARDSHIP as students, staff and parents volunteer to help others achieve their dreams. In April, we especially look to towards our role as stewards of the environment. Students show their understanding and need to care or our fragile planet and use our resources wisely through lessons, projects and practical activities. We will grow in our capacity to be responsible citizens. We invite you to join us on this journey by reducing, reusing, recycling and composting. At school, we want to make sure to reuse and garbage is accounted for. Please send in recyclable containers for lunches and snacks.

 

As we journey may the gifts of hope, peace, and love be yours during this sacred season of Easter and throughout the month of April and beyond. 

 

 

 

 


The following is an idea of what the Student Council will be responsible for:


Student Council (SC)                                                            


Students will elect a new Student Council each school year. The role of the Student Council is to:


  • Foster co-operation and understanding within a Catholic setting;
  • Build school spirit;
  • Promote a positive and enjoyable school environment;
  • Encourage student and staff participation in all aspects of school life;
  • Provide an active forum for all students for both academic and social concerns; and
  • Provide a means for students to gain leadership experience.


The SC accomplishes this by organizing and sponsoring student activities such as spirit weeks, theme days, lunch-time activities and other events. SC also represents the student body and their concerns to the staff and administration of Holy Ghost School.
