Catholic Schools Week began on January 30th and continued until February 3rd. The theme for this year was “Seeking truth, healing and reconciliation”
During this week, schools, families and parishes were invited to participate in a celebration of Catholic schools as a place where we learn to have faith in God, in ourselves and in each other. Faith is the centre of our Catholic schools, Faith in a loving God who created us with a vision and purpose is essential to all of our school activities, as we learn the importance of service to others and helping our community.
Our Middle School Leadership group planned a number of games and activities to launch Catholic Schools Week. As part of the activities students and staff got all dressed up as their favorite Saint or Bible character. We also held the Virtues Awards assembly in recognition of the virtue of GENEROSITY. Students also performed a sketch that recognized the virtue of KINDNESS. This virtue will be celebrated in February. Congratulations to all the students who received awards and thank you to all the Holy Cross families for your donations of non-perishable items for the Food Bank.
Students also participated in a Walk with Jesus activity. What a blessed week of festivities!
Catholic Schools Week was a time for reflection and to walk together in faith and a great opportunity to display student creativity and make memories.
We couldn’t be more grateful for our amazing and dedicated teachers here at Holy Cross. Thank you for your hard work and commitment to our students. Special thanks also to all staff members and Holy Cross families without whom we would not be able to do what we do.
