Halloween- Friday, October 29, 2021

We are STRONGLY encouraging our students to wear ORANGE and BLACK or FALL colours.

For students who wish to wear a costume please keep these reminders in mind:

  • When planning costumes that no replica weapons of any kind are allowed.
  • Costumes should be respectful of others. 
  • Symbols or objects representative of a person’s culture or religious beliefs should not be worn as a costume.

Due to COVID-19 precautions, please be aware that:

  • Students will not be able to use washrooms to change into costumes.
  • No Halloween masks are to be worn and students should only use single use make-up if required (no sharing of make-up).
  • Students are required to wear PPE face masks
  • Costumes should be of VERY SIMPLE design (we are trying to limit personal items being brought to school)
  • Halloween Treats cannot be sent to school 

Islamic Heritage Month

In 2007, the Government of Canada declared the month of October as Canadian Islamic History Month. This month affords an opportunity to reflect, celebrate and learn about the rich heritage and history of Muslims in areas such as literature, the arts, math, science, and socially. Affirming Muslim identity for our students is critical in creating the inclusive climates necessary for student well-being and achievement, as well as combating Islamophobia in our schools and further challenging systemic barriers to success.

Please see the Islamic Heritage Month Events/Programs and Resources section for upcoming events reflecting this year’s theme: Heritage and Healing
