Grade 7

Happy New Year!

Hello Parents!

I hope you had a blessed Christmas season with your family. Speaking of which, the Christmas season is not over yet!

Grade 7 & 3 Assembly – Friday January 11th

This Sunday marks the Baptism of Jesus, which is actually the final celebration of the Christmas season.

Sunday’s Gospel will be the focus of the Grade 7 & 3 Assembly this Friday, January 11th at 9am.

Documentary Screening

Also, this Friday January 11th, the Grade 5, 6, 7 students will be watching a documentary movie made by a former CISVA student and LFA graduate, Kat Jayme, about a former Vancouver sports franchise, the Vancouver Grizzlies (basketball team), focusing specifically on a player from that team “Big Country” Bryant Reeves.

Kat will be coming to screen the movie at St. Paul School (in the gym) and take questions from the students afterwards. Having seen the movie myself, it is very inspiring and will surely get the students pumped for basketball season!

Plot synopsis: 17 years after Vancouver Grizzlies NBA star Bryant ‘Big Country’ Reeves leaves town, super-fan, Kat Jayme, goes on a mission to find her childhood hero and tell the story of this forgotten legend. The documentary won the People’s Choice Award at the Vancouver International Film Festival (VIFF).
You can check out the trailer for the movie here:

Have a great week!
