We are pleased to welcome to our team, Jack Bayley. Jack is in Grade 11 and enrolled in the French Immersion Program and the Co-Op Program at Sacred Heart High School (SHHS).
The Ottawa Catholic School Board approved revised plans for a Temporary Attendance Boundary change that will affect Kanata West, the Village of Stittsville, and the Fernbank Community…
When I started my co-op placement with Stittsville Central back in February, I didn’t know what to expect from the online newsletter. Four months later, it has been one of my life’s best, most rewarding experiences.
On what was probably the hottest day of the year so far, over 100 Sacred Heart Students gathered to walk consecutive laps for 12 hours. Needless to say, lots of sunscreen was applied and plenty of water bottles were emptied.
Despite the obvious excitement of the Huskies going into OFSAA, they never expected anything less of their team. They are ready to compete on a bigger stage and we wish them the best of luck on June 5th and 6th as they play against the best in the province!
For seniors like Emilea Kavanagh, who played the lead role of Grace in the musical, getting to do one final show at the school is very special. Emilea says, “It means a lot to be able to do one last performance at Sacred. I’ve been a part of the drama program at the school since grade seven and I’m glad I get one more show before I graduate.”
Sacred Heart dance teacher Mrs. Donaghy and her grade 9 and 10 dancers took the time this year to ensure they stood out from the rest of the OCSB dance videos. The classes spent a school day at Zak’s Diner in Kanata filming their Grease-inspired dance video.
One of the most prestigious student awards at Queen’s University is the Agnes Benidickson Tricolour Award. The award is given annually by the Office of the Rector to students “for valued and distinguished service, leadership, character, and community impact.”
Both the Huskies’ boys and girls teams made it to the city finals this year, once again reinforcing the school’s dominance in the on-ice sport.
The school’s student council organized the buy-out hockey game where students donated two dollars to get out of class and travel next door to the Cardel Recreation Complex to watch the friendly hockey game in support of Heart Month.
We are pleased to welcome Kaitlyn (Katie) LeBoutillier to the Stittsville Central team for her co-op work placement until the end of June, 2023.
Samantha Dassanayake, a student at Sacred Heart High School, is an illustrator and the Marketing Coordinator for Bino Books a new startup that personalizes e-storybooks.
The Stittsville Knights of Columbus, along with Grand Knight, Joseph Carbonetto, should be extremely pleased with the amount of donations that have been raised throughout the month of August during their FUNdraiser in the Park market events.
On August 22nd, the Knights of Columbus team can again be found at Stittsville Village Square (Main and Abbott Streets) for their Back-to-School market.
Stittsville has changed a lot even since I was a kid and I have watched some of my favourite places disappear into subdivisions.
