St Nicholas 2013 Heading.jpg

St. Nicholas Board.JPG Every year all of our students wait expectantly for the arrival of St. Nicholas to our school and to hear the wisdom and experience the kindness and love brought by our beloved visitor. To see the excitement in the eyes of our youngest children is to understand what Jesus spoke of when he said that we all should be as innocent as a child. Our oldest students return for a moment to that time when they waited in wonder for the visit of St. Nicholas and now still look at him with veneration and love. The songs and poems related by the students reflected their happiness and the image of St. Nicholas giving his blessing to the children sealed the sanctity and joy of the day. 

On December 19, 2013, our students welcomed St. Nicholas to our school.  The gym was transformed into a beautiful gallery and our angels, Maria Kazantseva, Adriana Iourik, Tiana Wertelecky and Olivia Skoncej created an enchanted environment.  We welcomed St. Nicholas with songs and readings and he rewarded the students with gifts and wise words.
