Annoucements September 30

 

The annual Orange Shirt Day on September 30th opens the door to global conversation on all aspects of Residential Schools. It is an opportunity to create meaningful discussion about the effects of Residential Schools and the legacy they have left behind.  A discussion all Canadians can tune into and create bridges with each other for reconciliation.  A day for survivors to be reaffirmed that they matter, and so do those that have been affected.  Every Child Matters, even if they are an adult, from now on. 

 

Woodhaven Volleyball - Senior volleyball practice is today after school for our grade 8 & 9 students. 

 

Today is our Terry Fox Run...

This is the 40th Anniversary of Terry’s Marathon of Hope and we are proud to be taking part in this event to continue Terry’s legacy. This year’s event might look a little different but the end result remains the same; to raise awareness and funds for cancer research. While we may not be able to come together as a large group, we are still united as a strong school community and we can still carry on Terry’s dream of a world without cancer. So let’s remind ourselves of Terry’s courage and determination as we run today. Here is a quote from Terry Fox to think about... “Even if I don’t finish, we need others to continue. It’s got to keep going without me.” By participating in our Terry Fox event, we are continuing Terry’s legacy and helping people that are fighting cancer. Thank you for your efforts today, let’s all pull together and support cancer research.

 

If you have not already, please support the cause and do your best to send in a donation online available on Power School or the Terry Fox Foundation Website. Donations will be accepted until Friday. 

Here is a special message for the event from a former Canadian Olympic athlete
