ACHIEVEMENTS
SCHOOL HIGHLIGHTS
GRADE 11 RELIGION
Grade 11 Religious Education has been studying scripture. One scripture of focus was The Book of Revelation. Three students chose to represent their research in the form of a piece of art. Great imagery from Camila, Emma, and Georgia.

In this week’s school mass we heard a reading from the Book of Revelation.
BIO 11: SCIENCE, FAITH, & RECYCLING
Students brought in tree samples to identify in Life Science 11 - then their samples were repurposed for advent!
PE 10 ADVENTURES: HIKING
In snow....
...and in beautiful weather, the grade 10s PE class hiked!

REPORT CARDS
You’ve now received your first high school report card. Are you pleased with the results? Shocked? Upset? Whatever your response, take some time to think about what your focus will be for the next quarter. Don’t just look at the marks, but note the teacher comments too. Are you participating in class? Are you too social in class? Are you completing all homework and assignments? There is always room for improvement. You can achieve whatever you set your mind to!
CHRISTMAS TREES NEEDED!
To help ensure a visible reminder of our Saviour’s birth during the Advent and Christmas seasons, the Knights of Columbus councils of Kelowna and W. Kelowna are teaming up with the City of Kelowna to erect the Nativity Scene at Kerry Park (near the Sails on Bernard Ave) on Saturday, November 28. We need Christmas trees for the display. If you have any contacts who may be able to donate Christmas trees (culls are fine!) for this project, please contact Paul S from the St. Charles Knights of Columbus by Nov. 21 at pjaaas@gmail.com. Thank you

Chalice invites you to share the blessings of Christmas with children in the developing world. The Christmas Gift Catalogue allows you to purchase a gift for someone in need in honour of a friend or a loved one. A beautiful handwritten card will be sent to the recipient, telling them of the gift that has been given.
