After finishing third overall in their division, the St. Paul Golden Bears Boys Tier II Non-Contact hockey team, had a great playoff run with three convincing wins leading up to the finals (including 2 upset victories).  In the finals versus Franco-Ouest, the team outplayed and outshot their opponent but were stonewalled by an excellent netminder for Franco-Ouest, and in the end gave up an empty netter to fall 2-0.   St.Pauls is very proud of our golden bears!   Congrats on a great season and on being National Capital Finalists!

St. Paul students help the OPL plan for the future

posted Jan 15, 2018, 3:18 PM by School Websites

The Ottawa Public Library (OPL) is now planning for what the public library will be like in 10 years. They were very interested in speaking to youth to gather ideas from them. They did a series of one on one interviews to get to know the students' interests and, in a way, St. Paul students have become architects of the future. After the experience here is what the OPL staff had to say about our wonderful students:

I want to start by saying that yesterday was such a fulfilling day. The entire team found it to be very rewarding and inspiring, with many (who do not have direct contact with teens on a regular basis) stating that they have a new perspective on teens and their role in society. They all felt that the participants defied the existing stereotypes of youth.

Students learn leadership and new skills with the Kingdom Builders project

posted Jan 15, 2018, 3:09 PM by School Websites

For the month of November, St. Paul staff and students focused on Learning Partnerships as part of our Deep Learning initiatives. Mrs. Marin’s grade 12 religion class implemented these practices by partnering with grade 7 & 8 students to build picnic tables. The “Kingdom Builders” project provided grade 12 students with an opportunity to make vital connections between what they are doing and what they are learning. They took on a mentorship role with students at the intermediate level, where they were encouraged to learn, teach, guide,
communicate and collaborate with their peers.

With the help of Mr. Legault, a small “core leader” group of students learned how to safely build picnic tables for our school community, using kits originally donated from The Home Depot. Under the guidance of Mrs. Valentini and Ms. Strucchelli, these students then transferred their knowledge and skills to the rest the class and to their mentor students. Together, the students built 6 picnic tables while demonstrating leadership and responsibility. Two tables will remain at St. Paul, and the remaining 6 will be gifted to our Feeder Schools.
