Holy Trinity Catholic School students and staff held a golden celebration, with a visit by a Silver Medal Olympian and a run to raise money for the Terry Fox Foundation!
Last June, the school learned that it had been awarded gold certification in OPHEA's Certified Healthy Schools program. Holy Trinity is among just 100 schools in Ontario to receive bronze, silver or gold designation. The Certified Healthy Schools program, funded in part by the Ontario government, recognizes school communities which plan to take action to address health topics, such as physical activity, mental health and healthy eating.
"I am proud of the great work of our students and staff in achieving this designation, which is recognition of their tremendous efforts in promoting wellbeing in our school community," says Steve DeGurse, Principal of Holy Trinity Catholic School. "And I can think of no better way to celebrate, than to have a silver medal Olympian speak to our students!"
Canadian figure skater Dylan Moscovitch helped kick off the celebration, by speaking to students at three assemblies. He then led them in some warm-up exercises and stretches before they headed out onto the field for their annual Terry Fox Run.
