Warm Holiday Wishes

I would like to take this opportunity to wish each of you very Happy Holidays and all the best for 2020!

The educational mission entrusted to us is of singular importance in our time when deepest values and beliefs are shaken and shattered.

May this season increase our determination to favour kindness, dignity and respect in our day to day interactions with our fellow human beings.

Looking forward to seeing you at the Welcome Back Assembly and lunch Jan. 16 at 11:30 a.m. in 3C.1.

Peace,
Richard Filion

New Biophilia Mural in Student Services

Biophilia can be described as humanity's innate need to connect with nature and the natural environment. Being exposed to Nature is proven to have a relaxing effect on human beings. The waiting area for Student Services in 4E now has a beautiful mural of a forest scene with waterfalls. Reducing stress makes room for problem solving and creativity.
