posted Aug 12, 2019, 12:43 PM by Shelly Lyonnais

School Bus Safety

Children can take a school bus ride while their families tag along, watch an interactive school bus safety video, and enjoy games! All children entering the school system for the first time in the fall, or new residents to the area should plan to attend. The day’s activities are suitable for all elementary school-age children and everyone is welcome.
Each session takes approximately 45 minutes. The following activities are available at the school sites:

– Learn how to get on and off the bus safely
– Take a ride on the bus
– Bus safety information and hand-outs will be provided
– Watch a school bus safety video
– Participants will receive bus safety certificates and colouring books along with the information

Young Pedestrian Safety

With the Ottawa Safety Council’s interactive pedestrian training, children practice on a make-believe cross-walk with real lights and sounds. The session takes about 20 minutes and is facilitated by a safety specialist.  

A session is being held at St. Mark high school on Sunday August 25th from 9am-1pm.


Summer Blessings to our Families

Let us revel in summer. Let us soak up the long days and warm sun. May our feet walk on sandy beaches and our heads rest on thick grass under blue skies. May we listen to and marvel at the singing of the birds and stop to watch blissful children at play. This summer, God, may our breathing slow and our hearts open. God help us to be present to all that is, so that we might best see all that might be.

Vice Principal Bids Farewell St. Leonard's School and Community

It with a heavy heart, that I bid farewell to the St. Leonard's community. St. Leonard's School is a truly special place. You are so blessed to have your children here amongst a team of talented Educators who work tirelessly to provide deep enriching learning experiences to your children. They uphold high standards for respect and work ethic and prepare them well for the challenges of the future. They care deeply and are always cheering your children on celebrating their successes and guiding them along the path. It has been a privilege to serve as your Vice Principal this past year. I thank our Parents for your support as we worked together this year to teach, guide and support the students. As I prepare to leave I look back at my memories and feel truly blessed to have worked with your children and the staff and parents at St. Leonards. I was deeply moved by many things  that I experienced this year; a dedicated staff,  the lively school spirit ( LEO the Lion), our fabulous school council, the many devoted parents giving up so much of their time to support St. Leonard's , and the generosity of the community and students pulling together to help those less fortunate.  I was so moved at all of our masses and at the Grade 6 Leaving ceremony as I realized the deep connection that is evident between the Parish, School, and Community. As another journey begins, I bring with me all of these great memories that I made at St. Leonard's and all the friends that I will never forget. Thank you for a great year!  Blessings to you all for a restful summer, and I hope we shall meet again someday.
