Love-First, Last and Always
As we learn about and live this year's faith theme; Love-First, Last and Always, we are called to know God's unconditional love for us and respond to others with His challenge to love one another as we are loved. Love, by our Catholic faith, is not the roses and hearts kind, but the kind where we will the good of others as a child of God. In our school community, every day we have opportunities to respond to others with this love.
Last Friday students and staff spent some time outside integrating faith, physical literacy, and collaboration while celebrating this year's theme. The pictures below speak for themselves of the LOVE that is evident within our amazing school community.
May your fall break bring many moments of joy and love for you and yours!
A beautiful Remebrance Day Celebration! Thanks to our grade one team, Mrs. Schaub & our choir, our grade fours for leading, and all our special guests and parents for coming!
