St. Bernard of Clairvaux School Website


The Memorare of St. Bernard

“Remember, O most gracious Virgin Mary,
that never was it known that anyone who fled to thy protection,
implored thy help, and sought thy intercession was left unaided.
Inspired with this confidence,
I fly unto thee O Virgin of Virgins, my Mother, to thee I come,
before thee I stand sinful and sorrowful. O Mother of the Word
Incarnate! Despise not my petitions, but, in thy mercy,
hear and answer me.

I have responsibilities!

I am a peacemaker

I am fair

I am forgiving

I follow rules and do my share

I help the poor and care for people in need

I stand up for what is right

I know that all life is precious

I respect the world and all that is in it

Because I accept my responsibilities,

I can make a difference, and will live my life like Jesus


June Events


National Aboriginal Month

National Aboriginal Month


In 2009, June was declared National Aboriginal History Month, following the passing of a unanimous motion in the House of Commons. This provides an opportunity to recognize not only the historic contributions of Aboriginal peoples to the development of Canada, but also the strength of present-day Aboriginal communities and their promise for the future.
Every June, Canadians celebrate National Aboriginal History Month, which is an opportunity to honour the heritage, contributions and cultures of First Nation, Inuit and Metis communities across Canada. Canadians are also invited to celebrate National Aboriginal Day on June 21st each year.
