New Student Social
All Saints staff and students have done a great job welcoming large groups of students at our new student BBQ, our Celebrating 7’s and Amazing Race orientation sessions. However, our Student Services department with Ms. Moore-Chung demonstrated the importance of welcoming a smaller group at our New Student Social this past week. Students introduced themselves to each other, and had an opportunity to visit and get to know one another through ice breaker activities. We then provided the students with some additional information to help support them at their new school. It was a great opportunity for all involved.
Terry Fox fundraiser Kick off
With our Terry Fox run scheduled for this coming week, our staff and students provided a very meaningful assembly last week to begin the fundraising campaign. We learned some additional details regarding Terry Fox’s original run, and the scope of the campaign that now reaches many countries, involving millions of people while raising a great deal of money to battle cancer. We had one of our own students detail his own battles with the disease and his success in being in remission. There is a great deal of fun incentives built into the campaign, and we are hopeful that students will work hard at making this fundraiser a success.
