As we journey together through this new school year, we took time today to celebrate our official Opening of School Service.
This special day started with the blessing of our Junior Primary and Primary students, led by Sr. Mary Finlayson, RSCJ, who shared a beautiful message about sharing love. The official service then took place in our Chapel with a small cohort of students and staff while the rest of the School joined them virtually.
In addition to music, readings, prayers, and the lighting of candles to recognize our Five Goals, Sr. Wachter shared a lovely reflection that invited us to share the love that lives in our hearts by discovering our particular gifts and developing our unique potential, ideas which are deeply connected to this year’s School theme: Act justly, love tenderly, walk humbly.
Special thanks to Sr. Mary Finlayson, RSCJ, our Senior School Student Council, Ms. Mosher and her Grade 3 students, our Campus Minister Moira Schrader, and to all those who made this Service possible. It was a wonderful way to formally start the 2021-22 School Year.
