CHRIST-KING CATHOLIC SCHOOL
Where Did September Go?
We hope that all our families feel like they have settled into the school routine over the course of the month and that students are happy being back in the building! We are looking forward to another full month ahead!
National Truth & Reconciliation Day
September 30th marked National Truth & Reconciliation Day. At CKCS, we focussed on honouring the lost children and Survivors of residential schools, their families and communities.
Starting with a virtual assembly, followed by classroom sessions and activities, ending with a Healing Circle planned with the guidance of Elder Paula Rivard, our day was so impactful!
Students explored the rich and diverse cultures, voices, experiences and stories of the First Nations, Inuit, and Métis peoples.
We listen, we acknowledge, we reflect.
Junior High Leadership Retreat
Our Junior Highs are a very active team at CKCS and participate in many overnight trips throughout the year including Leadership Camp, Mountain Ski Trip, and Camping!
Grade 6-9 students participated in Canada's Federal Election on September 20th. They all cast their vote after learning about Democracy, the voting process and the political party platforms. It was a great activity that promoted civic duty!
Term 1 Junior High Options
For term 1 this year (until November), the JH student body voted in Baking and Driver's Education!
“The fruit of the Spirit is love, joy, peace, patience, kindness, generosity, faithfulness, gentleness, self-control…”
– Galatians 5:22-23
These are not virtues that we are just born with - they are things that we have to continuously practice to develop in our lives. But we can't do it on our own! We need to ask God, Jesus and the Holy Spirit to help us grow these skills!
