Georges Vanier Catholic Important Updates

'GO  MAKE  A  DIFFERENCE'

  October 20
                               October 20 insert

 

Welcome to an exciting new school year!
Please take some time to read and sign notes which were sent home with students in their new student agenda. These notes are to be signed and returned to your child's teacher as soon as possible. Please review the student agenda with your child. This is a great tool for your child to stay organized as well as a tool for parents and the classroom teacher for communication.

 

Georges Vanier School Prayer

 

Lord, in the morning as we start this day,
We take a moment to bow and pray.

We start with thanks,
For all your kind and loving ways.

And now as we begin our day,
Watch over us as we work and play.
We ask you to help us respect and love one another,
And all we meet during the day.
Hold our families and school staff in your hands,

As we follow, in your commands.
Teach us to love you more than before,
Through random acts of love and kindness.
Guide us to be like Georges Vanier,
And make a difference by
Helping the poor, the needy, the sick and the homeless.

We ask this through Jesus, Our Lord.

Amen
