School spirit plays big role at HT
BY MITCHELL LABRECQUE
Special to The News “Our Falcons excelled both academically and in the extra-curricular activities they have participated in this school year,” says Renee Rozon when asked to reflect on Holy Trinity’s 2015-16 school year. “Our amazing school spirit and support and support for one another is part of what makes us a family.”
It was a great year for the arts as Holy Trinity’s musical was none other than the Disney classic, Beauty and the Beast. The school also hosted the Sears District Drama Festival, where they entered three plays, one of which went on to win at that level. Also their students won six individual awards at the district level, they then moved on to Ottawa and won five individual awards at the Eastern Regional Level.
-Sports: In sports the Falcons had a successful year starting off with the senior boys’ volleyball and basketball teams, as well as the junior girls’ basketball team, winning the SD&G championship.
The school also won championships in mixed curling and junior girls cross country.
But the big success came with the gymnastic team winning the EOSSA championship then going on to compete in the OFSAA where they won team silver level 4, silver uneven bar, team gold level 5, and bronze in vault.
-Social: The Falcons continue to show school spirit through many events such as the Falcon Friend-zee and pep rallies. The students even demonstrated many forms of leadership with events such as the Beacon of Faith, in which senior school students led inspirational workshops for Grade 5 students from their feeder schools. There was also Charity Week which included activities to support Beyond 21 and their Cheese for Change fundraisers to support their sponsor child and others in the third world countries.
READY TO GRADUATE: Holy Trinity graduates Natasha Dupuis, Kaitlyn Cousineau-Hesse and Romualdjee Turenne take some time to reflect before their graduation ceremony last month.
