Our Lady of Lourdes Open House and Terry Fox Run
Open House, BBQ and Book Fair
On the evening of September 25th, Our Lady of Lourdes Catholic School held its annual Open House, BBQ and Scholastic Book Fair. Many families joined them for the evening, as they were treated to a BBQ and sweets, prepared by staff, visited classrooms to find the “Look-Fors” and ended with a draw for a Family Door Prize. Mrs. Vallieres and other volunteers held a book fair in our school Library.
Annual Terry Fox Walk
The annual Our Lady of Lourdes Terry Fox Walk was held on September 26th. Staff and students were joined by parents and family members, as they walked from the school up to the traffic circle and back, led by the winners of the Terry Fox T-shirt draws. Following the walk, they enjoyed a free hot dog lunch and ice cream (sponsored by the Student Council) and prepared by wonderful volunteers.
Once again, students were challenged to raise as much money as they could and for every $200.00 raised, a name would be drawn to throw a pie in the face of Mr. Baker. Well, we rose to the challenge and raised $1000.00. The gymnasium was filled with laughter on September 30th, as we gathered for the Pie in the Face challenge. Congratulations to our students on their efforts and thank you to everyone who generously donated to the Terry Fox Foundation.
