Principal’s Desk


On Sunday, representatives from our school were invited to the Drop-In Centre’s Orange Brunch.  This is an annual event where the Drop-In Centre says thanks to the many volunteers who help their clients in a wide variety of ways.  Our invitation extended beyond just thanking us for our support, the Drop-In wanted to acknowledge the great work that our school and St. Joan of Arc School has done over the last number of years assisting thousands of clients. Each year the Drop-In presents 6 special awards,
recognizing individuals or groups who have gone beyond what most people do, and we were one of these groups.

We were presented the “JOY” award. This award is presented to the youth group who inspires all to make our community stronger, to give, to love and remember that everyone matters.  During the presentation they thanked us for providing over 1,000,000 sandwiches since the start of our relationship and for the volunteer hours, donations of clothing and supplies and for raising money to pay for meals served.  We would like to pass on our thanks to our school community for being so supportive and congratulate you for being recognized by the Drop-In Centre and being given this award. It is the time you take in your kitchens and stores that pass on the Joy to the clients of the Drop-In Centre.
Way to go John Costello and St. Joan of Arc communities!
