·         Last Friday our Jr girls basketball team traveled to White Oaks for semi-final action.  Our Devils came out strong and competed hard against the Wildcats.  Both teams went back and forth holding a lead but the Wildcats capitalized on a couple OT turnovers and took the final lead and win with a score of 21-17.  Each OT player is to be commended for their offensive and defensive efforts and for having a successful season.

·           In 2016, the first week of November became marked as Treaty Recognition Week.  The purpose of this week was to honour the importance of treaties and to help Ontarians learn about the treaty rights and treaty relationships between Indigenous groups and the government.  To that end we will be having an announcement each day to honour Treaty recognition week.  We have also flown the flag of the Mississaugas of the Credit, who are our local treaty partner, and every school in Halton has posted a plaque that displays the honouring of the land statement as well as a map that marks the various treaty lands in Ontario.
