·         Do you like tea and comfy chairs?  Knitting Club will meet after school on Wednesdays

(crochet-ers are also welcome)


·         Founder of Free the Children, Craig Kielburger is coming to Oakville.  Come see him October 9th at the Meeting House.  Visit the Free the Children booth during 4th period for details.  If you are interested in buying tickets but do not have fourth lunch then come to the Free the Children meeting Tuesday after school.


·         Another fantastic win for the junior girls field hockey team.  They won 2 -0 against Assumption with scores from Gillian Groth and Niamh Reidy and an assist from Hannah Reidy.


·         The junior boys volleyball team defeated Bishop Reding two sets to one yesterday.  There were great digs from Keaton McCallum and great serving from Alex Haluk.  The boys will be traveling to Georgetown on Tuesday for their next match.  There will be a brief meeting Monday after school but no practice.


·         Yesterday the girls varsity basketball team travelled to Holy Trinity.  The Devils worked hard on defense but could not capitalize on their offensive opportunities and forced too many turnovers which led to the Titan’s win.


·         The senior boys’ volleyball team played a tough three sets yesterday against Bishop Reding.  They lost the first set then had a huge rally under the leadership of game captain Pat Smith. With some great aggressive plays by Malcolm Prentice they fought back to win the second set 28-26.  Unfortunately they lost the third set but showed great team spirit and professionalism.  All players are asked to meet briefly after school today in the Learning Resources room.
