​Fun at the 2016 Quinte Children's Water Festival

May 26, 2016

IMG_3273.JPGOn May 26, students in Grades 3/4, 4 and 4/5 from across the QWF.jpgregion participated in the 2016 Quinte Children's Water Festival held at the Batawa Ski Hill. Students took part in nearly 35 activity centres combining interactive, hands-on learning opportunities for students to 'soak up' knowledge on water conservation and protection, water health and safety, water science and technology and water and society. At one centre students learned how water travels through the soil. At another, they could also experience the difference between taking a shower with a water efficient shower head and one without. They could clearly see that the student standing under the non-efficient shower head was much wetter than the student using the water efficient shower head for the same amount of time. And at 11:30 everyone gathered in a large circle and took part in the Water Blessing ceremony. Through all these activities students were encouraged to become water stewards in their homes, classroom and community. 

  • 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.
