Students, parents, teachers and invited guests gathered together on May 9, 2018 to celebrate the work done in this year’s Turning Points Essay Contest Awards ceremony. The essay contest stems from the Learning Partnership, which champions education systems in delivering innovative programs, research, policy initiatives and public engagement programs across Canada.
Turning Points allows students to reflect on their unique individual journeys and write powerful essays about a significant event or turning point in their lives. Winning students this year were from Marymount Academy, St. Charles College and St. Anne School.
Marymount Academy held its first ever Walk, Bike or Run event on Saturday May 5 at Kivi Park alongside Maison McCulloch Hospice. The event was a lot of fun and a huge success, bringing in $11, 432 in funds. It was then matched through the generosity of Lily Fielding, bringing the total to $23,000! Funds raised will be split between Marymount and the Hospice. Amazing work Regals!
