On December 15, the community of Good Shepherd School came together to present a Living Nativity. The students performed beautiful dramatic tableaus of the nativity while the choir sang angelically. Just as it was in Bethlehem on that silent night two thousand years ago, we all came together in the name of our faith and all were welcomed. The living nativity was a perfect reminder of what Christmas is all about.
St. Cornelius School Cram-A-Cruiser Christmas Food Drive was very successful. The school foyer was overflowing with families’ generosity who demonstrated that they live their faith and answering this call to action. Students ‘crammed’ three Caledon OPP cruisers with non-perishable food items to support our local food banks. These generous donations have modelled a peaceful message to many, especially during the season of hope.
Students and staff at Father C.W. Sullivan School are making a difference this Christmas for seniors in our community. During recesses throughout the week in the months of November and December, students have been knitting, crocheting and looming scarves for seniors. Caring One Stitch at a Time hopes to give a piece of warmth during the Christmas season and demonstrate the true Christmas spirit through this outreach initiative.
Lester B. Pearson Catholic School Youth Faith Ambassadors organized a school-wide baby item drive. In addition, the YFA’s sold popcorn and water at the LBPCES Christmas Jingle Event and attended a field trip to purchase baby items to support the initiative. All items were donated to the Infant Wellness Program at Peel Children’s Aid Society.
On December 10, the staff and the students of St. Ursula School participated in the First Annual “Ugly Sweater” Day. Two dollars was donated by everyone wearing sweaters to support families in the school community. Many of the sweaters were creatively designed by staff, students and their families. It was a nice way to stay warm, demonstrate school spirit and support families at Christmas!
