GRADE 12 SFU FIELD TRIP

On Wednesday, November 29, several grade 12 students will be taking part in the annual SFU visit. The purpose of this trip is three fold; to tour the campus, learn how to effectively use post secondary library resources, and to connect with the faith opportunities through our chaplain Father Joachim Yoon.

Father Joachim is also the SFU chaplain and he will introduce our students to the Inter-Faith Center and Catholic Christian Outreach.

#GIVINGTUESDAY

We are approaching the upcoming launch of our Knights Annual Fund Appeal (KAFA) on November 28th, Giving Tuesday. Your support this year will significantly impact our dedicated students and teachers by fulfilling their wish lists. These items contribute to creating a more enriching learning environment and a stronger community for our Knights.

Additionally, your contributions play a crucial role in funding our bursary programs. Nearly 20% of our students benefit from full or partial bursaries, aligning with Blessed Edmund Rice’s Essential #3 and our core mission and values.

On the upcoming Giving Tuesday launch, we’re fortunate to have generous donors providing matching donations. ZLC Employee Benefits and Dan Eisner have generously committed up to $5000 in matching gifts. This means every dollar contributed on November 28th will have an even more significant impact. Furthermore, in collaboration with the Alumni Association, our students and teachers have raised $1000 each. These funds will trigger a 1:3 matching donation once we reach the initial $5000 target.

Your generous contribution on November 28th will make a meaningful difference and ensure that every dollar goes further. Regardless of the denomination, your support is immensely appreciated.
