Bishop Carter teams up with Sudbury 5 for Easter Seals

The leadership class organized a wonderful day to honor their fellow student Sebastien Parent. He is the Easter Seals Ambassador this year and they wanted to organize something special!

Michael Cullen (Sudbury 5), Joanne Bowers (Easter Seals), Mr. Mousseau (basketball coach) and Valentina Del Re ( Leadership teacher) worked together to make this fun day happen. “It’s great for school spirit, and teaches the students the value of giving back to the community”, said Mousseau. The boys and girls basketball teams played against the staff in front of a full gym of screaming gators.

Special shout-out to the cheerleading group who were awesome, Trenton our DJ, and Jackie the Sudbury 5 DJ who truly stole the show! Great times were had by all and the school raised $1025 for Easter Seals.

Welcome to our new students!

Hammirah (Princess) and Sultan (King) are new students to Bishop Carter and are also new to Canada from Lagos Nigeria. The population in Lagos is 15 000 000 people compared to the population in Sudbury of 165 000.

The siblings are sure enjoying their new experiences at Bishop! They have experienced winter first hand while participating in snow shoeing with the outdoor education class. “It was definitely a new experience, it was hard to get comfortable with but it was fun and new” said Princess.

Princess has also enjoyed her classes and in particular the use of the Chrome Books. The Google Classroom is something she enjoys and finds it makes her learning experience more engaging and easier for her. She also loves her math classroom where she is able to work in the “vertical learning” environment and share ideas with her classmates. She hopes to play basketball and flag football for Bishop next year.

Sultan is no stranger to the school gym. He enjoys playing basketball with his peers at lunch and has made many new friendships. He particularly likes his Communication Technology class with Mr. Facchini. “He creates a chill environment for us that is fun and educational. I really like the 3-D modelling unit we are in now because I can be creative.” Sultan is looking forward to playing soccer for Bishop Carter this year!

The end of 2019 was the very beginning of this new initiative aimed at supporting our youth and bringing awareness and knowledge around the indigenous culture. Robyn Lafortune is our new Indigenous Support Worker and we are so very pleased to welcome her into our school community.

This room has been named the “Sacred Room” and the hope is to create a safe place for students to work, talk, learn and connect with one another. The students will have the opportunity to help design the space and support with future mural projects within this space.

Moving forward students will be able to participate in a variety of different activities and teachings that will be facilitated in this space. Guest speakers will be invited to discuss their experiences and provide students with sacred teachings. On days where there are no planned activities this room becomes a safe space for students to drop in throughout the day either to work or talk with Robyn.

We are happy and pleased to welcome all students at Bishop Alexander Carter into this room to learn and share together!
