Grade 8 Faith Retreats at Catholic Central

Catholic Central took time this past week to welcome future Comets to our family. From October 21 - October 25, CCH Campus Ministry extends a warm welcome to over 120 Gr. 8 students from three of our feeder schools to partcipate in a half day retreat. Students are coming from Our Lady of Perpetual Help, Immaculate Conception, and St. Angela. The retreat, the first of its kind at the school, included fun and inter-active ice breaker activities, time for personal reflection from both the Gr. 8s and CCH students, and Liturgy of the Word lead by the Gr. 8 students in conjunction with Campus Ministry. Lunch is also provided courtesy of the Culinary Arts class at CCH. Positive comments were received by both the Gr. 8 class and teaching staff. Most students shared with Campus Ministry that they felt like they were at home while here at CCH. Plans are already underway to make this an annual event for our future Comets!

Learning Money - The Fun Way!

Our grade 11 and 12 students were treated to a Funny Money presentation today by Steven Levin.  Sponsored by the Cambridge Chambers of Commerce, the importance of fiscal responsibility was the focus of the presentation and students came away with a greater appreciation of the importance of financial planning for their future.

Today our Comets Senior Boys Football team, along with Kennedy Clippers, plan to fight cancer one yard at a time in a friendly game of football to raise funds and awareness for cancer  research.

Poetry in Motion

Students in English classes experienced poetry live and up close with Dr. Bruce Myer yesterday at CCH, where they were encouraged to "catch the things of the corners of their eyes" and express that in literary form.  Renowned poets continue to visit and work with students in today, and we look forward the the work they compose!
