blackhistoryawardIn late February, the Fifth Annual Gala and Award Ceremony in Celebration of Black History Month recognized the Ottawa Catholic School Board and a pair of its students with 2014 Community Builder Awards. Ana Jimenez, a grade 12 student at Lester B. Pearson Catholic High School, and Angelique Francis (pictured with Director of Education, Julian Hanlon), a grade 11 student at All Saints High School, were honoured at the ceremony.

The OCSB received a 2014 Community Builder Award for its extensive community work. Julian Hanlon, director of the OCSB, was on hand to accept the award. Philip Capobianco, Chair of the Equity and Inclusive Education Committee for the OCSB, said that "the OCSB is having a transformational impact in building a stronger Canada through its student leadership, organizational outreach and community partnerships. We are change agents for a better world."
shrekIn late February and early March, St. Peter High School put on a quirky and tremendously entertaining version of “Shrek the Musical.” The production put on by St. Peter Players (also known as St. Peter Musical Theatre), had it all: great vocalists, a student orchestra, wonderful choreography, and plenty of humour. Students Lindsay White and Cole A. Harrison Priddle played the leads, Shrek and Fiona, in the play. Singing alone, as a duet, or backed up by the rest of the cast, they were phenomenal. 
Resurrection-Cross"Dear brothers and sisters in Christ:

Our Easter celebration begins with a proclamation of joy. “Exult, let them exult, the hosts of heaven…let the trumpet of salvation sound aloud our mighty King’s triumph! Be glad, let earth be glad…!”

God’s plan was to rescue people from sin, restoring us to friendship with himself. This has taken place in the death and resurrection of Jesus Christ! God has come to us in the Incarnate Son to give us hope of eternal life and to bless us with Easter joy."
