Our Lord's Passion
So happy we get to reuse our mosaic mural even though we had to "split it" in half.
DIAMOND JUBILEE NEWS
In honour of our 60th anniversary, the students and staff prayed the rosary for the graduating classes of 1996, 97, 98, and 99. We prayed for the health, safety, and well-being of our alumni.
ACHIEVEMENTS
SCHOOL HIGHLIGHTS
GRADE 8s REACH NEW HEIGHTS
For the fifth year in a row, the Science 8 classes (under the guidance of Mr. K) have held a rocket launch to prove the concepts of aerodynamics and phase changing. Old records of 22m (distance) were demolished by at least 14 rockets. Top distances were: 47m. by Kaylah B., 44m. Dominic P., and 42m. by Morgan P.

All I know is, I never did anything this fun in Science!

Proudly displaying his creation, Kingston wins points for pointiest rocket (pun intended).
Mr. K, carefully adding water to the dry ice to create the reaction.
X COUNTRY PHYSICS 12 TRIP
Many of the students were unaware of how much work cross-country skiing can actually be and all students returned to school tired. A great work-out! Though some students stayed closer to the lodge, a few of them ventured out and completed the 8.7 km long Fern Creek trail. It was a grueling accomplishment!
THEOLOGY 12
Last supper
COVID FRIENDLY Holy Thursday activities with our grads in Theology 12!
 
From the gospel of John 13
6 He came to Simon Peter, who said to him, “Lord, are you going to wash my feet?”
7 Jesus replied, “You do not realize now what I am doing, but later you will understand.”
8 “No,” said Peter, “you shall never wash my feet.”
Jesus answered, “Unless I wash you, you have no part with me.”
9 “Then, Lord,” Simon Peter replied, “not just my feet but my hands and my head as well!”
10 Jesus answered, “Those who have had a bath need only to wash their feet; their whole body is clean. And you are clean, though not every one of you.” 11 For he knew who was going to betray him, and that was why he said not every one was clean.
12 When he had finished washing their feet, he put on his clothes and returned to his place. “Do you understand what I have done for you?” he asked them. 13 “You call me ‘Teacher’ and ‘Lord,’ and rightly so, for that is what I am. 14 Now that I, your Lord and Teacher, have washed your feet, you also should wash one another’s feet.15 I have set you an example that you should do as I have done for you. 16 Very truly I tell you, no servant is greater than his master, nor is a messenger greater than the one who sent him. 17 Now that you know these things, you will be blessed if you do them.

PSG SPRING FUNDRAISER
lilac_closeup.jpg
Dear Immaculata Families,
Spring has almost sprung, and with the anticipation of warmer and longer days ahead, so too comes the joy of Spring flowers!
The PSG is excited to announce our 2021 Spring Fundraiser. This year we will be trying something new & partnering with a local, family run nursery. Better Earth Gardens has a wonderful reputation for the quality and beauty of their arrangements and, best of all, they are located just down the road from Immaculata!
The ordering process will be a bit different than what we’ve done in past years. Orders & payments will be processed as follows:
1.  ORDERS
-     Have a look at the attached brochure of available products.
-     Fill out (manually or on the computer) either the PDF or Excel order form, attached to this email, and email to renaeclarkson@gmail.com. Please ensure that your order form includes your name and method of payment.
2.  PAYMENT
-     Etransfer: to irhs.activities@cisnd.ca and under memo/message, please include the word “fundraiser” and your name.
-     Cheque/cash: place in an envelope WITH a copy of your order form and return to Ms. Despins at the office, after Spring Break. Please ensure that cheques are made out to IRHS PSG.
**We are unable to accept Credit Card Payments for this fundraiser**

ALL ORDERS/PAYMENTS MUST BE SUBMITTED BY APRIL 12th. Orders will be available for pick up in early May. Date TBA.
Thank you so much your continued support of our Immaculata kids. Needless to say, this has been somewhat of a different year in terms of our fundraising abilities, so we are relying substantially more on our seasonal fundraisers. As well, we are happy to not only be supporting our own school community but also our local small business community. Thank you!
Have a fantastic Spring break!
