On February 25, 2021, the Supreme Court of Canada dismissed Good Spirit (Public) School Division's application for leave to appeal the Theodore case to the Supreme Court of Canada. This means that the unanimous decision of the Saskatchewan Court of Appeal that overturned the April 2017 trial decision stands. Good Spirit has exhausted their legal options, and the decision of the Appeal Court remains the law in Saskatchewan—which can be considered a victory for both religious and parental rights and freedoms. The statement can be found here and from the Supreme Court of Canada here.

Saints are witnesses whom we venerate and who in thousands of different ways bring us to Jesus Christ, the only Lord and Mediator between God and humanity. They remind us that holiness can blossom even in our lives, however weak and marked by sin. #SaintMatthew

Involvement in athletics and team sports encourages our students to be active and helps them to develop leadership skills and team work. The Blues name originated in reference to the blue colour that is synonymous with Mother Teresa Sisters of Charity.

Sometimes all it takes to begin building a more peaceful + inclusive society is for one person to take a stand for what is right. By speaking out when you see injustices, you are helping raise awareness and creating greater opportunities for eradicating hate. #GivingEveryTuesday
