Our Year End  BBQ was a huge success with what appeared to be our whole community present for the games, BBQ and socializing. 
A very special thank you to Ms Kearns who organized the event and coordinated the volunteers, and to the Knights of Columbus who grilled our burgers and dogs to a delicious perfection.  Our volunteers were wonderful and very genrous with their time. Thanks to Father Lindsay who visited and ended up volunteering as well!

Many thanks to Father Lindsay who joined us today for our Ash Wednesday Liturgy following a number of other visits to schools in the St. John the Apostle Parish. Mr. McEnery's grade 2 class lead the readings and intentions, and our SJA Choir, lead by Ms Faloon,  performed a number of songs, very beautifully. Thank you also to the parents and community members  who joined our liturgy as we began our Lenten journey towards Easter. 

40 Cans for Lent and OK Clean Water Lenten Projects

posted Mar 6, 2019, 1:22 PM by Steve McGarrity

This Lent, we are focused on two projects as a school community: a can food drive for our local food cupboards (we've partnered with the Knights of Columbus) and a fundraiser for  Ottawa-Kumbo Clean Water Initiative. Every Tuesday during Lent, we are encouraging students to bring in a can or two to donate to those in need. Working with a number of other schools, our goal is to raise 2000 pounds of food.  Last year, we came close to collecting that many cans ourselves. Our very generous  and compassionate  community definitely embrace our social justice intiatives and reinforce the good message of service to others.  
We also have four different special event or activity days to collect  donations for the OK Clean Water Initiative, culminating in our Mile of Coins Day which results in many pounds of coin donations all going towards byuilding clean water facilities in Kumbo, Cameroon.  
All of our community's efforts serve to make a differnce in the world, both in our local and global neighbourhoods, and to teach our students about social justice and their responsibility as Christians and as citizens in our world. 

WE SCARE HUNGER

posted Nov 2, 2018, 10:42 AM by Steve McGarrity

Thanks to the SJA for your awesome support with our food collection campaign this year. Our final total was 1751 cans collected over the month of October. A special thank you goes out to our Student Social Justice Committee, Ms Vesterfelt  and Ms Hodgins for their leadership and organization of the event. With our friendly competition between classes in the different panels we acknowledge Mr MacGillivary's grade 6 class, Ms Hodgins grade 1 class, and the Kindergarten "Frogs" who collected the most cans in their respective panels. 

Our goal was 1200. Our community supported the campaign well beyond our expectations.  Many thanks to all of our contributors who helped us stock some of the shelves at the food bank.
