At school basketball season has come to an end, and in the community hockey, basketball and soccer seasons are now wrapping up. The last third of the year will be packed full of activities at school: track and field, soccer, student-led conferences, Easter activities, Confirmation, and Play Day to name a few. Similarly I know families will be busy with outside activities such as lacrosse, baseball and music and dance competitions and recitals. My prayer for all of you is that you are able to enjoy all these activities in which your child takes part. Friday is our last day of school prior to the Spring Break. School will resume on Monday, April 1. I wish all of you a safe and blessed vacation.

Spring Play Student Production - ‘Steadfast’: Last January, I wrote to you about my plan for our students to create a drama performance of ‘Steadfast’, an adaptation of the ‘Little Tin Soldier’ written by Hans Christian Anderson.
At the time, I wanted to hold a meeting for parents who wanted to help. Those of you who replied to my letter, will know I decided to postpone the meeting, until the production team of students were up and running. I would now like to go ahead with the meeting on Wednesday April 3rd, at 6.30 pm, in the gym. It is the first Wednesday on our return from March break. The idea is to find out who can help our production team in an advisory role, and where there are gaps in our expertise, to take the lead.
