Advent Is A Time Of New Beginnings

Advent is a period of preparation, extending over four Sundays before Christmas.  The word Advent mean "to come to" and refers to the coming of Christ.  By spending time in prayer as a school and as a family, we can prepare our hearts and minds to celebrate the birth of Jesus Christ on Christmas day.  Through the weeks of Advent we will be reflecting on the themes of each week: Hope, Peace, Joy and Love.  

Week One – Hope

Week Two – Peace

Week Three- Joy

Week Four - Love


Faith Programs @ HSA

For Religion, our school uses the Growing in Faith, Growing in Christ program. This is an excellent resource that has been developed for children in Grades 1 – 5. The publishers are currently working on the Grade 6 program and we anticipate it will be available for next school year. One of the bonus features of this program is the parent links that assist parents in supporting their children’s faith journeys. Please visit the following link to the student/home page where you can access all of the different resources for all grade levels (with the exception of Grade 6).  Please call the school for a user name and password.
