Badminton Success!

Congratulations go out to this year's Badminton Team on their fantastic season!  They placed 3rd overall in their division and played very competitively while showing great sportsmanship.  Special mention goes out to our Mixed Doubles teams and Boys Doubles teams for making it to the finals.  Congratulations to Matt O'Neil and Cheyna Hall for their Gold Medal finish; to Dillon Acchione and Amelia Oliviero for their Bronze Medal finish and Reese Lambley and Ryan Sullivan for their Silver Medal finish.  Way to go SJV, we are very proud of you.

And a BIG thank you to the coaches Mrs. Hadland and Mrs. Langlois-Smith for their great work throughout the season.

Farewell to Fr. Thom

While it's never a happy moment when we have to say "good bye".  We still managed to have lots of fun at today's Farewell to Fr. Thom Celebration.

Our Guests of Honour:  Seminarian Dan and Fr. Thom

The Sign Language Club bidding "adieu" to Fr. Thom.

Fr. Thom and Seminarian Dan bring a smooth close to the celebration.

Best wishes to both of you at Sacred Heart in LaSalle.

You will be missed at St. John Vianney!
