The Waterloo Catholic District School Board’s theme for Bullying Awareness and Prevention Week is “A Community that Builds Relationships”. During the week of November 18-24, 2019, schools across our district will have opportunities to reflect on what it means to be: a peaceful community; an inclusive community; a respectful community; and a community of kindness. Students will be challenged to leave footprints of love and kindness as we journey together in faith to promote safe schools and a positive learning environment.

Some school based activities that we are doing this week are the following:

  1. Starting Monday we are accepting presents as part of our Angel Tree Campaign. In the promotion of “belonging” week, we must think of families in our community who cannot afford Christmas presents this year. All of us belong to our Catholic family and have a duty to support those in need. If you did not pick up an angel at Interview Night, we will hang them on the Angel Tree in the Library.
  2. Our Student Council will lead us in Morning Prayer tied to the daily themes.
  3. Teachers will do lessons this week which tie to our theme.
  4. To wrap up the week, Student Council is promoting a Twin Day on Friday where students are encouraged to find a friend and dress alike.
