Dear Parents/Guardians,

Last Friday, we were treated to a wonderful sharing assembly during which students presented on the theme of Earth Day. We witnessed thoughtful presentations, entertaining and informative student created videos and performances by a number of classes. As always, the Courcelette spirit was high and proud.
