Japanese Children's Day is celebrated in Japan annually on May 5, and this year Nicholson Catholic College students participated and learned more about Japanese culture.  Two international students from Japan shared a presentation about the National holiday in Japan and then their peers enjoyed a session on origami making and a sushi lunch. 

Japanese Children's Day​ is a day set aside to respect children's personalities and to celebrate their happiness. 

Each year Nicholson Catholic College in Belleville and Holy Cross Catholic Secondary School welcome international students from all over the world.  Throughout the year, both schools host events which provides students the opportunity to share their culture and background. 

  • Discipleship

    We accept the call to be imitators of Christ by embracing the Beatitudes through authentic witness at the school, community, and global levels. Rooted in our commitment to transmit our Faith and Catholic tradition, we are inspired to build communities dedicated to the formation of young people who recognize their gifts and responsibilities to contribute to the transformation of the world into a more just and loving society for all.

  • Scholarship

    We believe that each student, made in the image and likeness of God and being hope for the future, can be engaged in their learning and achieve at high levels with appropriate supports. We are committed to ensuring that the potential of each student is realized through the achievement of ambitious outcomes and improving in their learning to the highest possible level.

  • Stewardship

    We embrace our responsibilities for the prudent and judicious use of the resources we have been allocated. In our context, we are committed to the development and growth of all employees, responsible and accountable practices and our call to care for all of God's creation.
