On WEDNESDAY, NOVEMBER 6, 2019, hundreds of thousands of Grade nine students will spend the day at workplaces across Canada. Students will experience a wide variety of job and career options including what it takes to be a paramedic, work on a makeshift assembly line, develop a mock sales presentation or work in the IT department for a large corporation. Necessary forms will be sent home with students via their period 1 teachers and will be due on a specific date.
While the grade 9s are out of the school for the day, Grade 8s from our feeder schools will be bused to Bishop Reding for an introduction to student life in high school.

In the next few weeks, I invite you to tackle together the pressing questions that the pandemic has brought to the fore, social ills above all. And we will do it in the light of the Gospel, of the theological virtues and of the principles of the Church’s social doctrine.
On the 75th anniversary of the atomic explosion at Hiroshima, let us remember that resources used in the arms race could and should be used instead to promote integral human development and to protect the natural environment. #Hiroshima75
Let us pray for the victims of the explosions in Beirut and for their families; and let us pray for Lebanon so that, through the dedication of all its social, political and religious elements, it might face this extremely tragic and painful moment.
