Great things are happening at St. Mary's College! Check out the good news below:
Opening prayer service: St. Mary's College has the unique opportunity to celebrate Catholic faith. This year kicked off with an opening prayer service that left students joyful and uplifted. With this year's Catholic Education theme, "Living as Joyful Disciples," the student body certainly demonstrated their joyfulness and spirit, especially when singing "Lean On Me." Congratulations to Aidan Rollin who was also presented with this year's Catholic Student Award during the prayer service.
Special Olympic School Championships: On Tuesday, September 18, 2018, St. Mary’s College competed in a soccer tournament for Special Olympics School Teams held at Superior Heights. This wonderful program provides sport training and competition opportunities to high school student-athletes with intellectual disabilities aged 13-21.Again this year, SMC entered a Unified Team, comprised of athletes with an intellectual disability and mainstream students who compete side-by-side for their school. It is always a great day when students can enjoy some sunshine, engage in healthy competition, and spend time with friends. These student-athletes gave it their all. Great work, Knights!
The Crew in Blue: Link Crew does it again! Link leaders welcomed grade nine students with enthusiasm and demonstrated spirit and kindness that SMC is known for. "Getting to know you" activities, a tour of the school, helping tackle locks and visiting their homeroom, made grade 9 students feel more comfortable and at ease about beginning high school. Throughout the school year, Link Crew will continue to mentor their grade nine groups with social and academic check-ins. SMC's Link Crew continues to make a difference!
SMC students have a blast! St. Mary's Student Council had a blast at this year's Rotaryfest and raised almost $500 while doing so! The new council members, as well as other St. Mary's students, supported the annual community event and had a great opportunity to get to know one another. The students showed their support for Rotary Youth Charities and walked, ran, or rolled down Queen Street in front of thousands of spectators, “blasting” their way through four bright colour stations. Way to go Knights!
