Dear St. Brother André Community,

      As we finish up our last full week of distance learning, please reach out to your child’s teacher if you have any questions or concerns regarding the weekly assignments.  Keep up the hard work...we are almost done!

     We have been very excited about our St. Brother André Virtual Pilgrimage that started June 1st.  See the information below and a huge thanks goes out to Mrs. McIntyre for her hard work on this.  Updates continue daily as the pilgrimage goes right to June 26!


     Enjoy the weekend everyone,

Mr. Crookshank

What? SBA Virtual Pilgrimage

 A pilgrimage is a journey. A person goes in search of new or expanded meaning about their self, others, nature, or a higher good. It can lead to a personal transformation. (wikipedia)

St. Joseph’s Oratory in Montreal, Quebec is where St. Brother Andre lived and worked. The distance from our school to the oratory is approximately 200km. Our goal is to walk or run 200km throughout the month of June to make our way “virtually” to the Oratory. We might even be able to walk there and back (400km)!

When? Monday June 1st - Friday June 26th

Who? St. Brother Andre School Community (students, families, staff)

Where? Participants can choose their own route. Here is a 1.6 km loop, starting at our school, that families can walk or run.

How? In order to monitor our progress, please send an email to margot.mcintyre@ocsb.ca every Friday.  Include your family name (last name) and number of kilometers walked during that week.

Send your email every Friday (June 5th, June 12th, June 19th, June 26th)

On your walk or run, please remember physical distancing. 

Follow our progress! @McIntyreSBA
