During the month of November 2022, students at SHSC had the chance to remember those brave men and women who have continued to fight for our freedom. Lining the hallways of the school were the names of over 300 veterans who have been laid to rest in local cemeteries.
Beside them were the names and information of student’s friends and family members who have also served.
Students colored and decorated poppies, which they laid on each name so that no veteran would be forgotten. Every single name displayed received a poppy from one of the students and no one was forgotten. The senior students also travelled to the local cemetery to visit the grave of these soldiers and pay their respects. Students and staff worked with Estevan Diversified Services which employs people in the community with physical or intellectual disabilities. They created wooden poppies for students to decorate and lay on each grave as a reminder of their service for their families and the local community to see and remember as well. In this second year of participating in the program, it continues to be a meaningful and impactful experience.
Feast of Saint Nicholas Celebration and Christmas Dinner
Once again this year staff and students at Sacred Heart School celebrated the Feast of St Nicholas on December 6th. In the morning students were greeted with shoes stuffed with treats to honor this great saint and the good he did for those in his community. Students were called to share that same light and love with others and help them prepare for Christmas during this Advent season too.
Students were treated to Christmas Dinner by our CSCC. Turkey, stuffing and all the fixings filled our bellies and warmed our souls with Christmas Spirit and fellowship! It was great to see this SHSC tradition finally return for students after Covid made it impossible in years past.
