JK/SK Space Exhibition Project
Without skipping a beat after the announcement that the world scientific community published the first ever photo of a Black Hole, Mrs. Arsenault, Mrs. Furlotte and the Our Lady of Fatima JK/SK class took this project to the next step. They have built a rocket ship and attempted to blast it off in search of this Black Hole. The students explored the concept of gravity and light years and had a lot of fun launching their rocket ships!
The St Brigid Bison hosted their annual Stations of the Cross procession through the streets of Nakina on Holy Thursday. Joined by parish priest Father Praveen Kumar, students and staff from St Brigid Catholic School and Notre Dame des Écoles took-up the Cross and lead prayers and reflections throughout Nakina, reliving Christ's last hours before the crucifixion.
On April 16th, school teams that included the Principal, the Learning for All Teacher or a Classroom Teacher and an Educational Assistant took part in The Third Path Professional Learning.
All of our schools have begun focussing more on creating environments based on relationships, and look forward to continuing our Third Path journey.
The Superior North Catholic District School Board is honoured to be a project partner with Thunder Bay District Health Unit to implement the Youth Violence Prevention Project.
This exciting initiative provides the capacity to implement a school-based, skills-focused, healthy relationship program aimed at preventing teen violence and related risk behaviours for Grade 7-9 youth in our region.
Together we will deliver the Fourth R, an evidence-based program that addresses the Grade 7-9 Ontario Health Curriculum with units on:
- Personal Safety & Injury Prevention
- Substance Use, Addictions and Related Behaviours
- Human Development and Sexual Health
- Healthy Eating
The Fourth R applies a youth-focused, harm-reduction strategy to empower students with the knowledge, positive relationship skills and decision making abilities to target the unhealthy behaviours and attitudes that contribute to teen violence perpetuation and victimization.
