Social Justice

Social Justice Projects Throughout Our School

Social Justice is very important to the staff and students of Sacred Heart School.

Here are some of our social justice projects for this 2018-2019 school year

We Scare Hunger Food Bank Drive

Our iLEAD Option Class, in partnership with Denham Ford, supported our local food bank with the We Scare Hunger Food Drive.  

The junior high art class created the Monopoly Man for the WDACS Pumpkin Ball. We have participated in this social justice project for six years now and our creations have collectively raised between $10,000.00 and $12,000.00 for WDACS. 

Coins For Cancer

WELL DONE Sacred Heart!!

We are delighted to announce that our Annual Terry Fox Run was a huge success. We surpassed our goal of raising at least one toonie per student! To date, we have raised approximately $1200.00, with more coming in every day!

Congratulations on making our Coins for Cancer campaign a huge success! THIS IS WHO WE ARE, EVEN WHEN NO ONE IS WATCHING!!! Thank you to all of the students and teachers who contributed with money, a kind gesture and especially the footprints (see the picture attached). A special thank you to Mrs. Vogel, Mr. Rosetto and Mrs. Shakeshaft for their touching stories and to Mr. Hamer for his Power Point and for coming to set up the gym the night before!

At this time, we would like to thank all of our volunteers who made this event possible: Jill Toldy, Katrina Staple and Sandi Hancock for the entire set up, manning the water station, first aid station and counting coins. Special thanks to the Grade 4 Weatherill students and Junior High Worship Team for their wonderful music! Thank you also to all teachers who helped out! Please accept our sincere apologies if we have been remise and missed anyone.

Finally, as the students have surpassed their goal of a toonie per student, the entire school will be treated with a performance and an ice cream party sponsored by our Admin Team! More information will be forthcoming as to when this will take place.

Here are some of our social justice projects for this 2017-2018 school year
