The Grade 9 BBQ is Tuesday, June 11 at lunch time. Many thanks to the parents who donated food and drink. Your generosity is very much appreciated. Thanks also to the parents who have volunteered to help set up, hand out food, and clean up afterwards. These celebrations cannot happen without your assistance and gift of time.

During Grade 9 testing at the end of this week and through next week, parents and students are reminded that all classes continue as normal outside of the testing times.
