At St. Anne School, we have enjoyed learning about HOPE at the end of the school year. With graduation and summer plans, as well as dealing with difficult events in life, hope keeps us calm. As the writer of Hebrews said in chapter 6:19, "We have this HOPE as an anchor for the soul, firm and secure".Hope Catholic Virtue Picture

The Grade 7-8 French Immersion class really showed the virtue of charity last week. They held a bake sale for the school community and the money raised was used to buy presents for needy children. This was made possible In conjunction with Anson General Hospital who always decorates a Christmas tree in their front foyer with angels bearing the gender and age of a child in need. The students initially chose 2 angels (children) from this tree, however, the bake sale brought in so much money that the students were able to go back and chose 4 more children. Now that’s the spirit of Christmas!Bake Sale Picture
Tom Hudon, JK/SK teacher at St. Anne School in Iroquois Falls, submitted this article and picture from one of his students, Ava.
The story behind this picture is that during an indoor recess on Tuesday, December 14th, Ava asked if she could draw on the black board while the other students played. After a while of drawing, Mr. Hudon went to check on her and saw that she drew this nativity scene on the board with great detail (great for a 5 year old). This picture embodies the spirit of Christmas and adds to our website during this holiday season.Ava's Picture
St. Anne Catholic School was fortunate to have Hélène Nicole Richard and her assistants present her concert "Le Franco à Gogo: Fall in love with French" in our French Immersion schools. Six performances in all were presented over five days at English Catholic Central School, Sacred Heart Catholic School, St. Jerome School, O'Gorman Intermediate Catholic School, Sacred Heart School, St. Patrick School and St. Anne Catholic School. Hélène's goal is to have "students fall in love with the French culture, discover that French is a vibrant language spoken around the world and will become enthusiastic to learn to speak it and understand it better." Some of the comments from staff and students were: "We really enjoyed the concert... the students were very engaged and we loved how they got teachers involved too!""Fall in Love with French" Concert Picture
