 William Marcus and Marley Prime were the MCs for the Leaving Ceremony and did a wonderful job of seamlessly weaving the speeches, liturgy, presentation of certificates and awards together into one beautiful event. J.C. Sevigny,  Kaya Johnson, and Sahat Alam spoke brilliantly for the Leaving Class sharing their thoughts on the past, present and future of their experiences as St Jerome students and soon to be SFX students. The Grade 6 video was an excellent way to celebrate the class and their many friendships. Thanks Ms. Nisbet. 

Our award winners  were recognized at the ceremony and are as follows: 

Public Speaking Award: Laeticia Fosso and Samuel Millette; Catholic Leadership Award: Hannah Villeneuve and Matteo Golin; French Award: Sahat Alam and Brianna Bhasin; Top Male and Female Athletes: J.C. Sevigny and Laeticia Fosso; Knights of Columbus Citizenship Award: Sara LeBlanc; Academic Award: Gemma Giorgio and Kaya Johnson; Visual Art Award: Kaitlyn Hughes and Samuel Millette; Bert O'Connor Award: Sofia Pierson; Sportsmanship Award: Alexandra Kropop and Yannick Longval; Director of Education Award: Olivia Cesa; Carole Haussler Award: Ryan Savoia Mulvey and Joshua Chiarello; and the new Social Justice Award: Benjamin Smith and Andrew Coxall.

Congratulations also go out to Grace Romano who was awarded the St. Jerome Community Builder Award. Ms Romano has been a School Council member, former chair, co-yearbook editor and Walkathon lady supporting. Her effort and countless hours of volunteering are greatly appreciated.

Thanks to the Grade 6 and Resource teachers as well as Ms Draper, Ms Dunbar and Ms Haussler for all of their work to organize the ceremony and decorate gymnasium for the event. It was a wonderful occasion that culminated in beautiful reception organized by Ms Gall and the Grade 5 parents. Thanks also to Ms Romano and Ms Heavens who organized and made the silhouettes of our grade 6 class students.
