Holy Redeemer ‘Awash in Sea of Pink’ for Re­spect Week

The Compass - - ORTHTE -

The week of Feb. 25 to March 1 was “Re­spect Week” at Holy Redeemer Spa­niard’s Bay. Stu­dents and staff had an ab­so­lutely fan­tas­tic week learn­ing about and en­gag­ing in acts of RE­SPECT.

There were many pre­sen­ters and spe­cial guests from var­i­ous or­ga­ni­za­tions. Stu­dents greatly ap­pre­ci­ated the many dif­fer­ent pre­sen­ta­tions from var­i­ous spe­cial guests: RCMP Const. John Clarke; Ju­lia Can­ning, MMSB; Heather Sut­ton, Com­mu­ni­ties Against Vi­o­lence; Amy Ken­dall, Fos­ter Fam­i­lies; Deanne Chip­man, Melissa Sey­mour and Lori Mercer, East­ern Health; and Peggy Or­basli, Kids Eat Smart.

As a com­po­nent of our Pro­vin­cial Safe and Car­ing Award that we re­ceived, we were able to add ad­di­tional draws for our weekly Rocket Re­wards pro­gram. Thanks to a cre­ative idea by Mrs. Dwyer (Grade 2), all stu­dents com­pleted a “Re­spect Pledge,” which they signed and en­tered into other prize draws for the week.

On Wed­nes­day, Feb. 27, all stu­dents and staff wore pink in sup­port of “Stand Up to Bul­ly­ing,” and stu­dents and staff en­joyed a fan­tas­tic pan­cake break­fast.

Stu­dents were very ap­pre­cia­tive of staff mem­bers Mr. Shep­pard, Mr. Lynch, Mr. Pike, Mr. Bishop, Mr. Crane and Ms. Gil­lard and par­ents and com­mu­nity mem­bers Tina Drover, Kim Crane, Jeri His­cock, Tracey Cumby, Melissa Mercer, Sharon Reeves, San­dra Bar­rett, Debbi Dyke and Gary Hutch­ings for coming in at 6:30 a.m. to pre­pare to help serve break­fast.

The week con­cluded with a won­der­ful as­sem­bly that saw our stu­dents and staff ablaze with the colours of the rain­bow. For more pho­tos, visit http://www.redeemer.k12.nf.ca
