On Tuesday, Thomas Bares, Ashley Snippe, and Madeline Hubbard traveled to the Limerick Forest Interpretive Center for the Eastern Ontario Envirothon, and returned as winners. The crew from St. Mikes got a total of 59 out of a possible 60 points to beat eleven other teams at each of the four stations: Wetlands, Tree Identification, Species at Risk, and Forest Inventory.
They also got a chance to make Wood Duck hatching boxes to help the species build its numbers. Many thanks to the Limerick Forest Center staff and volunteers for making today a terrific event for everyone who attended.
Members of the Catholic school community are invited to share their thoughts about contemporary issues in Catholic education. The Institute for Catholic Education is collecting feedback to better understand the challenges and opportunities for our Catholic schools and the students who attend them. We are at a time in our province when we need to come together in conversation, gathering as a community to name and understand the challenges presented by an increasingly complex and secular society.
