PowWow on Parliament Hill
To celebrate National Aboriginal Day (now re-named to National Indigenous Peoples Day), a number of students went to Parliament Hill to take part in a PowWow and other activities. I spoke to students at the end of the day and many explained to me that they had an amazing time and learned a lot. This is something we will definitely look at repeating next year.
Excursion to Calypso and La Ronde
On Friday our grade 7's went to the water park at Calypso and our grade 8's went to La Ronde in Montreal. Everyone arrived back home safely and all had a good time. Thanks so much to staff for organizing both events and for supervising.
Grade 8 closing ceremonies will take place on Tuesday, June 27 at Notre Dame Cathedral Basilica at 1:30 p.m. Grade 8 students have already been given tickets for the celebration. Students will need to be driven from the school on Tuesday to Notre Dame by a parent/guardian. We ask that students and family members arrive no earlier than 1 p.m. because there is a noon mass at Notre Dame and we will not be permitted to enter until mass is finished. When the doors to Notre Dame open, students should go to their assigned seating area according to their homebase. Parents and guardians will be seated immediately behind the student area. After the ceremony, students and family members are invited back to the school for a reception.
Grade 7 Awards Ceremony
On Tuesday, June 27, our grade 7 students will be recognized for their academic achievements at our Grade 7 Awards Ceremony at 9:15 a.m. Parents/guardians will be notified if their child will be receiving an award.
Just a reminder that our school cafeteria is now closed for the school year; hence, students will not be able to purchase lunch from the servery.

As this is my final blog until the new school year, I would like to take this opportunity to thank St. Patrick's students, staff, and parent community for the support and commitment that they have shown this year. A special thank you to our School Council for the support that they have demonstrated. I look forward to welcoming our new and returning students in September. I wish everyone a restful and relaxing summer.
