Several St. Patrick's Catholic High School students have raised more than $500 in support of the St. Joseph's Hospice of Sarnia-Lambton.

The students organized a concert at the school.  Students who attended were asked to make a minimum donation to the hospice of $5 for admission to enjoy the show.

"I want to thank all of the students who organized this benefit concert; and thanks also to everyone who attended in support of St. Joseph's Hospice," says Robert Cicchelli, Principal of St. Patrick's Catholic High School. 

"These kinds of social justice projects, which reach out to support members of our community, are an important part of the mission of Catholic education and of our high school," says Mr. Cicchelli.

Each year, St. Joseph's Hospice needs to raise $1.4 million to provide programs and services free of charge to people with terminal illnesses, in the community of Sarnia-Lambton.  The hospice also provides bereavement support for adults and children, following the death of loved ones.

Bishop Joseph Dabrowski was the featured speaker at St. Clair Catholic's Great Family of Our Church - Our Annual Day of Faith and Learning Together events in Chatham and Sarnia.

"My very special thanks to Bishop Dabrowski, whose remarks included an inspirational personal account of the meaning of the Year of Mercy, which gave each of us much on which to reflect, especially with the approach of Lent," says Dan Parr, Director of Education.

There was a tremendous representation of priests, principals, parents, CWL and Knights of Columbus leaders, lay ministers from our parishes and the leaders of our employee groups at the two-day event. 

"Whenever we can come together as representatives of a number of constituencies in the Catholic community to celebrate our common purpose, it can only serve to strengthen Catholic education, now and for the future," says Mr. Parr.

Mr. Parr was also pleased to host Sarnia-Lambton MPP Bob Bailey at the Sarnia event; and a representative from Chatham-Kent-Essex MPP Rick Nicholls' office at the Chatham celebration.

Students and teachers at St. Elizabeth Catholic School in Wallaceburg celebrated Family Literacy Day by heading to camp!  Camp Read-A-Lot featured a day of activities, which included inviting guest readers into the school, to share their love of books.

"It was a fantastic day," says Liz Gibson, Principal of St. Elizabeth Catholic School.  "The kids were really excited to come to camp.  We even had s'mores!"

The day's events promoted the love of reading in many forms -- not just books.

"Reading is reading," says Mrs. Gibson.  "It can be a sports score, it can be a newspaper article, or it can be on-line research.  The subject and the medium can be as varied as the interests of the reader."

Guest readers included members senior administration from the Board office, newspaper reporters and radio personalities.  John Van Heck, the Chair of the Board of Trustees, also dropped by to read to students.

"The message to students is that reading is fun," says Mrs. Gibson.  "We also want to engage our families, because when literacy is promoted at home it is a real benefit to the students."

Camp Read-A-Lot was also a successful fundraiser, collecting about $1,500 in pledges.  The money will be donated to the school library.

Students in Steve Churchill's Grade 11 English class recently participated in a "20-Time" project, based on Google's corporate model for motivating and inspiring employees.  Google staff are given 20 per cent of their time at work to pursue projects that interest them.  Through reading a book on the subject, Mr. Churchill learned that the model has led to some of Google's most innovative research; and he decided to try it in the classroom.

The goal is to motivate and inspire students, through research and teamwork, to achieve something on a subject they care about.  The topics ranged from social justice projects to entertainment to technology.

The students presented the results of their work to an audience at the Ursuline College theatre, which included peers, school staff, St. Clair Catholic District School Board curriculum leaders and Chatham-Kent Mayor Randy Hope.

"I'm really impressed with the work I saw," says Mr. Churchill.  "It was great to see the enthusiasm and passion that the students felt for the projects they worked on.  It was evident from their presentations."

The students also blogged about their experiences and what they had learned through their research, which was another important aspect of the project.

In the photo above, some of the students who participated in the 20-Time Project pose with (back row L-R) Ray Power, Principal of UCC; Steve Churchill, Teacher; Scott Johnson, Superintendent of Education; and Randy Hope, Mayor of Chatham-Kent.
