Nov 13

It is already November. We held our Remembrance Day ceremony this month and our student choir, student speakers, audience members and a special Grade 11 guest from John G. Diefenbaker High School shared a respectful tribute to the fallen soldiers.  Learning in the classrooms took place leading up to the ceremony.


Student voice met and chose the virtue for the month. This month’s virtue is Persistence. Persistence is also part of our school logo. Persistence is being purposeful and steadfast. It is sticking to something, staying committed, no matter how long it takes or what obstacles appear to stop you. When we are persistent, we stay friends even when the friendship is tested. We do not give up until a solution to the problem is found.  When you commit yourself to a task, pace yourself, and be persistent. Do the task step-by-step. “Success comes in cans. Failure comes in can’ts”  Fred Seely
