December 2016

We are in the last month of 2016 already! December is a short month but we still have a lot of work to do to prepare for the upcoming Christmas break and exams happening in January 2017. Christmas Break runs from December 21st to January 3rd inclusive.

Students will need to make sure that they are caught up in all of their classes before the break to ensure that they can properly prepare for their final exams beginning January 18th. Following the break, there will only be two weeks of classes before exams begin. The last day of regular classes for the first semester is scheduled for Wednesday, January 17th. Students are responsible to hand in all outstanding assignments and seek additional support if required.

Thank you to our school choir and band for performing at the Remembrance Day ceremony. You did a wonderful job and can’t wait to hear what you have planned for Christmas! Congratulations to our volleyball athletes who competed in Spike It at the beginning of November. Our Falcons took home four banners! Challenge Cup took place on November 23rd and our hockey players continue to make us proud every year. The Falcon spirit is strong and both games were played with dignity and pride. Good job Falcons!

Although December is a short month we still have many things going on including a Christmas concert at NACC on December 13th and our Winter Prom on December 16th. Our badminton players are getting ready for their tournament on December 9th and basketball practices have already started in preparation of the Cager tournament in February. Check out our website and click on ‘athletics’ for practice schedules. We wish them luck!.

The SJF staff are available to discuss concerns or answer any question you may have. Please email the staff or call the school (669-0773) to arrange a meeting. A grad meeting for parents was held a few weeks ago. If you were unable to attend and would like more information on what was discussed, please call the school. Email addresses can be found on our website (

The first day of Semester 2 classes is January 31, 2017. Students will be given their timetables for Semester 2 in the morning on January 31, 2017. I hope you enjoy some time off over the holiday season. Merry Christmas and Happy New Year! See you in 2017!
