Thanksgiving Prayer before a Meal | Holy Rosary Cathedral
Wishing our St. Benedict Community a beautiful weekend full of blessings and thanks. God Bless, Mr. Guerin & Mrs. Le Conte

We want to start by thanking all of the families who donated for our Thanksgiving Food Drive. We collected an enormous amount of food, which we will give to families in need. Extra food that was collected will be given to the Milton Foodbank. 

Congratulations to Mrs. Cardoso-Lopes/Mrs. Thompson (kindergarten), Mrs. Cordeiro (primary), Mlle. Gruszczynska (junior), & Ms. Daponte/Mme Vandervelden (intermediate) for being the classes who collected the most food for their divisions.  Each class will be rewarded with a pizza party.  

An Important Letter to Families from Dr. Meghani ~ Fall Gatherings

As we head into this Thanksgiving long weekend, it continues to be important that we work together to follow public health measures so that we can ensure a safe and healthy learning environment for all students, families and staff in our school community.

Dr. Hamidah Meghani, Chief Officer of Health for Halton Region has provided the following letter to parents and guardians: Fall & Winter Gatherings 2021.

As Dr. Meghani noted in her message, we must remain vigilant as we look forward to celebrating the many holidays, seasonal gatherings, festive occasions, and other events in the fall and winter months to help keep our community safe. 

Please continue to follow the advice of our Public Health professionals to help minimize the spread of COVID-19 in our community and to protect your loved ones. 

10 October is World Mental Health Day

The overall objective of World Mental Health Day is to raise awareness of mental health issues around the world and to mobilize efforts in support of mental health.

The Day provides an opportunity for all stakeholders working on mental health issues to talk about their work, and what more needs to be done to make mental health care a reality for people worldwide.
