New Exam Schedule, effective January 24, 2019

Because of the two snow days that have taken place during our high school exam schedule, we posted a new exam schedule yesterday that required some students to write two exams in the same day.  We heard from parents, students and educators who asked us to reconsider this new schedule.  We thank you for sharing your concerns with us and have looked at other options for exam writing.   

All exams have now been rescheduled to January 25th, 28th, 29th and 30th.  That is, all exams have been bumped by two days.
 

Exams that were originally scheduled for January 23rd will be written on January 25th.
Exams that were scheduled for January 24th will be written on January 28th.
Exams that were scheduled for January 25th will be written on January 29th.
Exams that were scheduled for January 28th will be written on January 30th (a scheduled PD Day).

January 30th remains a PD Day for grade 7 and 8 students.  It is now an exam day for our grade 9 to 12 students.

The exam schedules at all schools for all students will be affected (not just for school bus riders).    
OSTA will provide regular bus service on January 30th.

If you have any questions, please call the main office at your child's school.

Pursue Your Passion Tour - January 22, 2019

posted Jan 14, 2019, 6:35 AM by Kathleen Power

Pursue Your Passion Tour

We are delighted to have been given the opportunity to host the Government of Canada's Pursue Your Passion tour here at St. Patrick's High School.
This event is a fun, engaging, interactive student-based activity that will take place on January 22, 2019, for our grade 8 classes. Students will be able to explore future passions as well as learn about the health impacts of cannabis use.

It has been identified that regular cannabis use, especially in youth and young adults, can impact brain functioning, which could make it harder for young people to achieve their goals.  By encouraging participation in engaging experiences that tap into sport, art, and the virtual world we hope to spark a
future passion and educate about the facts of cannabis use.

Our interactive experiences will encourage students to understand the value of thinking, planning, movement, coordination, decision-making, and emotions and how these could be affected through the use of cannabis.

Suzanne Gravel, a registered dental hygienist with Ottawa Public Health, will provide a dental screening using a tongue depressor on January 18, 2019*, for 3 classes of grade seven and other children as necessary.  If your child's grade/class is not selected, but you wish for the dental hygienist to see him/her, please advise the school.  All children screened will bring home a report.  Follow-up school visits by the dental hygienist for individual children may be done.  The screening helps identify children with oral problems, dental needs and pain.  Free dental care may be possible, if eligible.  THE SCREENING DOES NOT REPLACE REGULAR DENTAL VISITS WITH YOUR FAMILY DENTIST.  *Some date(s) may be subject to change.
