Welcome back, everyone. We hope you had a great Easter break. Last Sunday, the prayer group celebrated the Divine Mercy with Mrs. Coleman at All Hallows Church.

On Monday we hosted our annual in school Heritage Fair. There were lots of great projects. Winners were Amna Ahmad, Hajra Ahmad, Keely Brothers, Mira Ismail, Maria Reynolds, Clara Ryan, Bridgett Sparkes, Gina Spencer and Douglas MacKenzie.

They will represent our school at the Western Region Heritage Fair held at G.C. Rowe. The public viewing is at 1:45 p.m.

On Tuesday, we celebrated International Dance Day! We had Bernice Rose from the Humber Community YMCA do two Zumba sessions with our students in the afternoon.

It was awesome.

Everyone had lots of fun! Also on Tuesday we had our junior kindergarten and kindergarten information sessions for parents of students beginning in September.

On Thursday night, we had our spring concert. Our school drama group, choirs and bands performed as well as special performances by students who participated in the Rotary Music Festival.

Our Grade 6 girls soccer team has started practising for their upcoming tournament next weekend.
