Welcome to a New Year everyone. After celebrating the birth of our Saviour Jesus Christ, hopefully we are ready to begin a new year refreshed and renewed in spirit. Due to the Canada Winter Games our “Spring Break” begins early on February 16. What an exciting time for our city and indeed our school with two IC Alumni, Nico and Carolina Hiller representing BC at the games. Congratulations to them.
Here are a few items I would like to highlight for January. As we begin the New Year we will have a special focus on literacy and developing good reading habits – a skill for life. We are also very excited to open a new sensory room at the school to support students who may need that extra help. After several months of transition, now is the time for full implementation of our updated dress code policy as mandated by the Immaculate Conception School Council. Thank you for your cooperation with this.
Our virtue of the month for January is “Fairness”. When we think of fairness we think of sharing equally, of taking turns, of listening to others to understand their perspective. The lessons learned and the habits formed at this young age will be the foundational stones of developing responsible people who practice equality, who will not tolerate injustice and who will always act with love.
Have a great month everyone.
