Last week the Knights of Columbus held their annual free-throw contest for our students. Over 50 students from grade 4 through 7 signed up to show their skills and have fun with their friends. A number of alumni came by to help out and many parents watched and cheered on the contestants.
A big thank you to all the Knights for coming by and running the competition. Thank you also to Mr. Yaptinchay for organizing the event and the teachers that helped with set up and the distribution of the pizzas. Congratulations to all of the participants.

At the start of the second week of this year’s Fall Campaign, school families spoke at all four weekend masses (Oct. 29/30) about the “why?” of St. Augustine School. This was followed by Fall Campaign Chair Rob Napoli's testimonial at all masses during the November 5/6 weekend.
Their stories were personal and passionate: the strength of the school and parish communities working together, the role of the school helping families bring their children to a deeper relationship with Jesus, and the power of faith in the face of adversity.

On the weekend, I spoke at mass about why we give each year. I thought I would share an extract of my story. I grew up in Melbourne, Australia. My parents were immigrants and worked very hard their whole lives to raise four children and give us every educational opportunity they never had in post war Italy... read more
The Grade Five class hosted a beautiful and solemn school assembly for Remembrance Day. With each student doing his/her part, an atmosphere of reverence and respect was present in the room. The school heard a brief history of the World Wars, a message of peace focusing around Pope Francis's visit to Auschwitz, Poland and a need to help refugee families from Syria here in Canada and at St. Augustine.
Thank you to the parents who were able to attend. Never forget... always remember.

On Sunday we began the season of Advent and on Monday, the students took part in an Advent assembly and Family Group activity. The assembly, hosted by the grade 6 students, reminded the students about the symbols and meaning of the season. After the assembly, the students went to their Family Groups and the grade 7 students led an activity in which each student make his / her own Advent wreath. We hope that all our families will take some time during the Advent season to pray together around the wreath and to discuss the many ways in which we can be the hands and feet of Jesus and help those in need.
