This event was designed to promote healthy active living and was jointly sponsored by Holy Cross' Students' Council, Green Team, Wellness Team and the Kingston, Frontenac, Lennox and Addington Public Health Unit.

Students were dropped off at one of six designated locations where they received a ballot from a team member to enter to win a new bike and helmet. Students then continued on foot to school, where they were greeted with a healthy snack before starting class.

This is just one of the many initiatives at Holy Cross to promote a healthy active lifestyle. New bike racks were also installed at the rear of Holy Cross to encourage students to bike to school and give them a safe place to keep them during the day.

  • 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.
