First Week of Advent – Hope

As we begin the Season of Advent, we pray…

Dear Jesus, you are the hope in our world. This Advent, help us slow down, listen to your voice, and focus on what’s really important. We place our hope in you as we prepare our hearts to celebrate your birth on Christmas.




We welcome Mr. Burnley to our St. Gabriel School Community where he will be teaching Grade 4 French, and we welcome the return of Mrs. Savva who has settled into the Grade 6 Class in Portable 3.


Advent Celebration

To begin our Advent Season, our Advent Celebration for the first week of Advent is on Dec. 2nd at 9:30. Our Early Years Team will lead us in celebration. All are most welcome to join us in the gym.


Thank You SNA

Thank you to Lori and Sabrina at SNA. We began our first Grade 3 Girls Club at lunch. There was a lot of excitement in the centre. We truly appreciate our partnership with Silverheights Neighborhood Association. Thank you Lori!
