STUDENT LIFE

Our First Advisory is in the books. Well done to the Waterford planning crew for starting us off strong! Next Advisory is mid October.

Club Fair is next week Wednesday and Thursday September 27th and 28th. If you have any questions please reach our to Mr. Power. If you would like to put in a last minute submission please fill out this form. Submissions will close Saturday at Midnight.

CAREER LIFE

Grade 11 and 12 students and parents are encouraged to go on to the Education Planner website. This is a great resource to search and plan for possible post-secondary options! (This is also the site where gr. 12 students will begin their applications to BC post-secondary institutions.)

Gr. 12 Parent Night to review the process of Post-Secondary applications and Scholarships will take place on Wednesday, September 27 at 6pm in the Cafeteria.

CAMPUS MINISTRY

Staff and students from several schools will be taking part in a three-day series of workshops designed to take students and staff from a model of service and charity to one towards true advocacy. The workshops will take place at the KW Hall at the SJPII Centre September 27-29, 2023.

STMC has arranged to bring in several individuals from the Westcourt Centre in Belfast, the North of Ireland to facilitate the three days of training. The Westcourt Centre is a Blessed Edmund Rice ministry managed and directed by Cormac McArt. Cormac and key members of his team, Dr. Aiden Donaldson and Brother Denis Gleeson, work hand-i- glove with the 111 Christian Brother Schools in the North and South of Ireland, as well as England to develop staff & student faith formation and domestic immersion experiences based around Catholic Social Teachings and the UN Social Development Goals.

We believe that for all of those involved would benefit significantly from learning what the City in Focus is currently doing around homelessness, as well as the myriad of intersectional issues that are inextricably connected the underlying causes/effects.

DRAMA

Have you ever thought about treading the boards of the stage? Ever watched a movie and thought ‘Hey! I could do that!’

Well, now is your chance! STMC Drama are putting together a production of Polly Teale’s Mermaid to be presented to the community at The Anvil Centre in April 2023. Mr. Walker and his team are looking forward to working with male and female students from Gr.8-12 on this exciting and very different piece of theatre that will engage your heart and your head in a dynamic style of performance.

This is a call out for anyone interested in experiencing a fun, character led but movement based piece of theatre. If you are interested, please watch this video for more information and/or ask Mr. Walker for more details.

CROSS COUNTRY

Our first cross country meet will be on Thursday, Sept. 28 at Central Park. The meet begins at 3:30 on the grass field next to the Central Skytrain station. Feel free to come on out and cheer on the team!

FOOTBALL

After over a month of training and learning the game, the Grade 8 Knights finally have a jamboree against competition from other schools on Tuesday, Sept. 26 at VC.

The JV Knights finish their Exhibition season versus the always tough GWG Grizzlies 3:30pm Thursday, Sept 28 at Burnaby Lakes.

After 4 hard-fought Exhibition games, the AAA #4 ranked Varsity Knights take on the #3 ranked Carson Graham Eagles at 7:30pm Friday, Sept. 29 at Burnaby Lakes. Come out in all WHITE to support your Knights!
