Six of our SOS student leaders attended a Report Back to Community event last week. This was a community event to promote and raise money for the Suicide Prevention Network of Ottawa,a network of over 50 organizations who are helping young people with mental health issues. Our students were very brave to present in front of nearly 200 people,and they presented themselves extremely well. They spoke about our Sources of Strength peer mentoring and awareness program —the training,the diversity of the group,the meeting different peers,the small projects they have done and the impact of the program. The Mayor of Ottawa,Jim Watson,also attended and our student leaders had a chance to meet with him (the mayor tweeted about CW!). Congratulations and thanks to our students:Trevor Benner,Shay Escander,Kyleigh Gault,Erika Pelland,Leona Mae Scully,and Skye Wiersema. Photos can be seen at:http://cspn-rcps.com/
Grads are reminded that it is very important to submit your downpayment as soon as possible for attending the Prom. This gives the Prom Committee accurate numbers and will help make our Prom a success. Your student leaders have worked very hard to bring the Prom back to CW,in a much less expensive,more inclusive way,while still enjoying a first-class evening at the Chateau Laurier. Let’s support the Prom Committee. On the same note,the Prom Boutique will be held tomorrow,Thursday,February 25th after school in the library. Students will be able to browse through new and gently used dresses so their costs can be brought down even further. The Prom Committee is still taking donations of dresses and accessories if you have any items in your house you wish to donate.
Please note that the bell times for CW have been officially changed for the 2015-16 school year. Beginning in September 2015,Cairine Wilson will begin at 9:30pm (currently 9:15am) and end each school day at 3:30pm (currently 3:15pm).
