Catholic Education Week
OLA Fine Arts Evening for Valeda House - May 21
A little bit about the evening
The evening will begin at 6:00 with an open gallery walk of art work created by our OLA students. Guests are invited to peruse the art work and visit our gift shop (because every art gallery has one!) any time between 6-6:45 p.m. At this time, our attention will turn to our choir and handbells who have prepared a short performance for you to enjoy!
A little bit about Valeda House
Elk Island Catholic Schools is committed this year to supporting Valeda House, a safe and secure temporary shelter for homeless women and children. Schools throughout the district are hosting a variety of events to support this fundraising initiative and OLA Catholic School would like to do their part by including a fundraising component to our Fine Arts Evening! There are a few ways that our families can help support this worthy cause during the evening:
- A silver collection plate will be available for those that wish to make a donation when they come to walk through the gallery
- Our Grade 4 Servant Leadership Faith Squad and Citizenship Squad have been creating artwork to sell at the gift shop - please stop in!
- The Kinder Kids have created an art piece to auction off at the end of the evening. Tickets will only be 3 for $1, so bring your loonies!
Please mark your calendars and come out to support our students and the women and children of Valeda House! We look forward to spending the evening with you!
