Congratulations to the Division 6/7 Yellow Team School Champions!

Advent has begun

This week, we began the Liturgical Season of Advent. During these weeks we turn our thoughts to the coming of Jesus, who is the saviour of the world. Jesus is the Son of God, present among the people God loves. That is good news.

During Advent we think about the many ways God comes to be with us. We try to make ourselves more ready to receive God in our day-to-day lives.

How to Enter

Classroom Teachers have also been giving children an opportunity to create a design in class.
