Zachary LeShane Lays Vimy Pilgrimage Foundation Wreath at Remembrance Day Ceremony
Nov. 12, 2014This past summer, Zachary LeShane was awarded a trip to France in recognition of the Vimy Pilgrimage Award he received for outstanding youth leadership and service. There were 21 Award recipients across the country with 2 coming from our province (Zachary and a student from Mount Pearl).
Last week, the Vimy Pilgrimage Foundation contacted the 21 Award recipients from across Canada, and informed them that they would be receiving a wreath from the Vimy Foundation to lay at this year's Remembrance Day ceremony in their town/city.
Zachary was in attendance with his Cadet Corp (RCSCC 295 Baccalieu) at the Remembrance Day ceremony held at Old Perlican on Tuesday, November 11th. Below is a picture of Zachary at the monument where he laid the wreath on behalf of the Vimy Foundation. Congratulations Zachary on your award and on your laying of the wreath on Tuesday.

Parent Survey - Samsung Canada
Oct 23, 2014In late September, we sent home a memo regarding a survey that we have been asked to complete for Samsung Canada and The Learning Partnership dealing with technology in our school.
This survey is now available for parents to complete online. The survey can be accessed by clicking on the link below. We would really appreciate your support with this initiative and ask that you please take some time before the October 31st deadline to get this done.
Annual Awards Night Ceremony
Oct 20, 2014Congratulations to all of our students who were recognized with awards and scholarships at Friday's Awards Night ceremony. A special thank you
to Dawn Oliver for her rendition of "O Canada" on the flute and to the members of our choir who performed the "Ode to Newfoundland".
Also, a special thank you goes out to all of the individuals, organizations and businesses who contributed to our scholarship fund again this year. Please know how much the entire educational community here at Baccalieu Collegiate appreciates your support for our school and our students.
Sept. 24, 2014Our Drama Club is gearing up for another exciting year of Drama!

As a result of a partnership with Samsung Canada and The Learning Partnership through the Canada's Outstanding Principals Program, our school has received $20,000 worth of technology in the form of 45 Samsung Chromebooks and 20 Samsung Tablets. One of the expectations of our participation in this partnership is that our students, parents, and teachers complete a survey on our views on how technology is being used to support teaching and learning in the classroom.
We are being asked to complete two online surveys, one by October 30th and another by June 30th. Each survey will take about 15 min. to complete. Given the investment these people have made to support technology in our school, we would really appreciate everyone's help in providing feedback through these surveys.
Today, we are sending home a consent form for parents/guardians to sign giving permission for students to complete these surveys. This is the first stage of this process. We are asking parents/guardians to sign these consent forms and to have them returned to school as soon as is conveniently possible so we can move forward with this initiative.
Thanks, in advance, for everyone's help with this project!

We are in the process of getting our extracurricular program up and running for the current school year. Our X-Country runners have been training over the past couple of weeks and our volleyball tryouts have begun for some of our teams. Our choir will be meeting on Wednesday afternoons (beginning tomorrow) and our Drama Club will be meeting on Mondays when they get going this fall.
We have a Youth Advisory Group that have formed in partnership with our school liaison to the RCMP (Constable John Clarke) and they are currently surveying students and staff to get direction for their group's work for this year. We have also put the call out for nominations to our Student Council in preparation for our upcoming election.
Students are encouraged to find something you enjoy doing and get involved!
