The St. Clair Catholic Summer Learning Camp, now in its third year, is a hit with students and continues to grow in both Sarnia and Chatham.  The three week-long program, which began with just three classrooms in Chatham, has now expanded to eight classrooms between Chatham and Sarnia.

"Summer Learning Camp is an opportunity for students to reduce summer learning loss," says Brenda Corchis, Coordinator of Elementary Curriculum and Early Years Lead for St. Clair Catholic.  "The evidence also suggests that it helps to build confidence and learning skills in our students."

The program consists of 45 hours of literacy and math over three weeks, which is done during the morning hours.  In the afternoon, educational excursions or special activities are planned.  In Chatham-Kent, students will visit the Gable Rees Pool in Blenheim, Parks Blueberries, the Chatham Gymnastics Centre, the Chatham-Kent Children's Safety Village and the C.M. Wilson Conservation Area.  In Sarnia, educational excursions are planned to the Moore Museum, Petrolia Pool, East Street Fire Station, Stones N Bones Museum and Canatara Park.

"The educational excursions are used to help provoke the students' thinking and further their interest in learning," says Mrs. Corchis.  "We also keep the children physically active, through dance and other fun activities."

Healthy Snacks are provided to the students through funding from the Sarnia-Lambton and Chatham-Kent Student Nutrition Programs.

Camp runs from 9:00 a.m. until 3:00 p.m. Monday to Friday from July 11 through July 29 at St. Matthew Catholic School in Sarnia and Georges P. Vanier Catholic School in Chatham.  The program is funded through a grant from the Ontario Council of Directors of Education.

Chatham-Kent Fire & Emergency Services and Monsignor Uyen Catholic School teamed up with Toronto Blue Jays Baseball and the Fire Marshal’s Public Fire Safety Council for the Swing into Summer Safety campaign. Chatham-Kent was selected to host one of five municipal launch events.

“As part of the Year of Mercy, the Monsignor Uyen Catholic School Social Justice Team partnered with the Chatham-Kent Emergency Services to fundraise for the Red Cross and residents of Fort McMurray,” says Principal, Juli Faubert. “Our students were outstanding in their efforts to organize a fundraising family picnic and BBQ.  They raised approximately $2,200 through food sales.  We are grateful for the partnership with our local fire department and sponsors who made our day such a success.”

The school held a contest, which included decorating classroom doors with the Swing Into Summer Safety theme and the class that returned the most completed Family Home Escape Plans won a kickball game against the CKFES team (including chiefs, administrative support staff and firefighters).

“We had a great time playing kickball against the FDK (Full Day Kindergarten) class. There was a lot of laughter,” says Public Educator, Whitney Burk. “Thanks to the Toronto Blue Jays and the Fire Marshal’s Public Safety Council we were able to give away Toronto Blue Jay swag and a grand prize – 4 Toronto Blue Jays baseball caps and 4 field-level tickets to a 2016 regular season Blue Jays game.”

The goal of the Swing Into Summer Safety campaign is to improve public safety in Ontario by raising awareness and educating school-age children and their families about fire safety and other injury prevention tips over the summer.

Students at Ursuline College were awarded $20,000 in scholarships and bursaries at last night's graduation ceremonies, thanks to a $1 million legacy gift donated to the school by the Ursuline Sisters in 2015.  This is the first year the scholarships have been awarded.

“On behalf of our school and our students, I want to again acknowledge the Ursuline Sisters for this generous donation, which will support Ursuline College graduates into the future,” says Ray Power, Principal of UCC.

The interest from the $1 million endowment is divided in the following ways:

  • Two Ursuline Sister Scholarships – of up to $3,000 each.  The scholarships are awarded to two students who have high academic excellence and who have demonstrated leadership skills through concern for others and involvement in social justice issues.
  • Two Angela Merici Bursaries – of up to $3,000 each for students headed to university.  These bursaries are awarded to two students who have achieved academically, demonstrated a concern for others, are involved in social justice issues and have shown a need for financial assistance.
  • Two Xavier Bursaries – of up to $3,000 each for students headed to college.  These bursaries are awarded to two students who have achieved academically, demonstrated a concern for others, are involved in social justice issues and have shown a need for financial assistance.
  • Two Ursuline Sisters Awards for Apprenticeship Programs – up to $1,000 each.  These awards are granted to two students who have successfully completed academic requirements and are enrolled in an apprenticeship program.

The remaining funds from the interest on the endowment are provided to a committee of UCC educators made up of the principal and advisors.  These funds will be used for school and student needs, such as uniforms, food or dental work and/or departmental needs, such as musical instruments, new technologies or equipment.  The funds are for expenses above and beyond the St. Clair Catholic District School Board’s normal capacity.

A plaque, which honours the more than 150 years of dedicated ministry of the Ursulines was unveiled at the school’s graduation ceremony last evening.  It commemorates the founding of the school by the Ursulines of Chatham and honours their “…visionary, faith-filled leadership of Catholic education in Chatham-Kent.”  It also acknowledges their “…steadfast commitment to respond to the needs of the community with unwavering generosity and love.”

Holy Trinity Catholic School in Sarnia has achieved the highest level in Ophea's Healthy Schools Certification program - gold!  Ophea is a not-for-profit organization that champions healthy, active living in schools and communities.  Students followed the 6-Step Healthy Schools Process, which guides school communities through planning various healthy activities.

"Under the direction of Ms. Restivo-Karlsson, our students embraced this program and demonstrated a strong commitment to promoting healthy lifestyles in our school community," says Mr. Steve DeGurse, Principal of Holy Trinity Catholic School.  "I am proud of their work and of their achievement!"

Ophea's Healthy School Certification Program recognizes and celebrates school communities for promoting and enhancing the health and well-being of students, school staff and the broader community.  Just 100 schools have been recognized across the province.  Only those schools which demonstrated innovative approaches to engagement and community partnerships were recognized.

A Health Expo was held in the school gym in April.  Parents, students, staff and community members were invited to participate.  The students' role was to create, lead, foster, develop and promote health and wellness.  Out of that expo came ideas, which 10 groups of students focused on and pursued - daily physical activity, intramurals, empowering girls to become more physically active, mental health vs. mental illness, the effects of asbestos in the community, healthy eating, getting fit through the use of technology and an air purifying indoor living wall.

The Ophea gold certification was celebrated at a school assembly today.
