Recent changes have occurred with regards to smoking and vaping in Ontario. Smoking and vaping cannot occur within 20 metres of the school property. For the past few weeks we have been educating students with regards to the changes in the law. However, starting this week there will no longer just be school consequences for these infractions. Any student who smokes or vapes within 20 metres of school board property will now also be fined according to the Ontario Smoke Free Act, along with any appropriate school consequences.

Our Grade 7/8 students will be practicing and preparing for the Knights of Columbus free throw competition. Practices will be running at lunch recess. Students will need to sign up under the appropriate age category. We will hold our school competition the last week of January with winners moving on to represent our school at the district competition being held at South Huron on February 2. Practicing shooting free throws is a great way to get ready for the upcoming basketball season.
