Online Safety Session For Grades 4 & 5
Constable Burrows, our RCMP School Liaison Officer, recently visited our school to educate students in grades 4, 5 & 6 about online safety. In a warm and engaging session, the officer discussed the importance of the internet, potential online risks, and practical safety measures.
Students learned about protecting personal information, setting strong passwords, and the "Think Before You Click" approach. They were also encouraged to report suspicious online activities to trusted adults. The concept of "digital citizenship" was introduced, promoting responsible and respectful online behavior.
The interactive session left the students with a heightened awareness of online risks and the tools to navigate the digital world safely. The visit reinforced the importance of fostering responsible digital citizenship in the younger generation.
ALL SAINTS DAY & ALL SOULS DAY
All Saints Day is celebrated on November 1st. On Nov. 2, All Souls Day, we remember those who have died believing in the resurrection and in life everlasting.
As November is the month of Remembrance, we will have our Book of Remembrance on our front prayer table, starting on October 23, for students, staff & families to record the names of family and friends who have died.
We will also be creating a display in our school to honour our deceased loved ones. We invite students and staff to bring pictures (preferably mounted or framed) and/or small mementos of any family members or friends who have died. They will be reverently displayed and will serve as a reminder of these loved ones and our call to pray for them. Please write your child's name on the back of the picture or memento so that we can return them at the end of November. Please bring these photos to classroom teachers. Thank you!
