We did a school wide activity re. camels – beasts of burden who are a symbol of humility. In our entrance (prayer centre), each child and staff wrote something they have done to show humility. No names were on them – so that there was no recognition for the act so it was a demonstration of humility, and then classes had them in their rooms – most by prayer centres if they fit, with acts that OTHER students had done to show humility.
The student exemplifying the virtue of Humility is Tristan Bujold... here is why...
St. Anne School recently held a “Hat Day” fundraiser for a local three year old boy battling cancer. The students were asked to donate a dollar to wear a hat to school for a day with all raised funds going to Kyle Lecuyer’s family. The school raised $600 that day, as many students donated $5 instead of the suggested $1. One grade seven student, Tristan Bujold, who has expressed several times in class that he “feels bad for the little boy” brought in $35 of his own money to donate. The staff did not feel right accepting this large donation, but instead encouraged Tristan to donate $5 and insisted that he keep the rest. The following day, when the grand total was announced Tristan told his teacher that it should have been $630 if his donation had of been accepted. She reassured him that his generosity and kindness was greatly appreciated by the staff. He then stated, “it’s okay, I told you that I feel really bad for the little boy and he is going to have the money anyway”. When asked what he meant he told his teacher that he left school the day of the fundraiser and went to a local store that had a donation jar for the Lecuyer family and he donated his $30 there. Tristan’s act of kindness and generosity is also a true act of humility as he donated with no thought toward being recognized. We are all very proud of him.The student exemplifying the virtue of Humility is Tristan Bujold
Mrs. Lambert’s class held a Mother’s Day Tea. Children read their work to their mothers about why they are awesome and presented them with a flower made as part of Catholic Education Week art activities. The children sent invitations and there were snacks and of course – iced tea.St. Anne School's Mother's Day Tea
The Gr. 5/6 French Immersion students held an “expo” to show off their work on obscure (and some famous) Greeks. They wrote about who they were, what they did/were historically significant for and did a piece of art to represent their lives along with their write-ups. They presented these to classes who signed up to visit at different times throughout the day.

The Grade 6 class at St. Anne's school in Iroquois Falls recently graduated from the D.A.R.E. program (Drug Abuse Resistence Education). Constable Paul Harrison met with the students over a 9-week period, educating the students on the dangers of drugs and alcohol. The program also outlined and taught decision-making skills and empowered the students to make healthy choices. The students wrote essays on what they had learned over the 9-week period and some had the chance to present these to friends and family at the graduation. It was a very proud moment for all.Picture of St. Anne School Students Graduating from DARE Program

St. Anne English Catholic School in Iroquois Falls hosted their 4th Annual Recycled Art Show in support of Earth Day. Students showcased art they had made using only recylced materials. Their sculptures also had to be connected with the earth and the environment and thus, were embedded in their art and science curriculum. This year students created geothermal alternative energy powerplants, a tree that "gives so much more than man-made materials", a shower that lets its user know when they have used enough water, endangered species and polluting factories, among others. Everyone had a lot of fun and learned much about our earth, it's importance to us all, and how we can care for it.
