  • Wishing You A Merry Christmas

    Today we celebrate the birth of a King.  Jesus is the Saviour that God promised, and His birth proves to us that God keeps His promises.  Placed in a wooden manger by His mother, Mary, this wood was replaced by the wood of the cross where He was hung to die, but ultimately the place where He accomplished salvation.  Even in the dark times and uncertainty of this pandemic, let us remember the words of the angels, “do not be afraid”.  Let us believe that Jesus brings light to the darkness, and only He can take away our fears.  Let us put our hope in Jesus, this Christmas and always.

  • School Reopens on Tuesday, January 4th

    The school is scheduled to re-open on Tuesday, January 4th after the Christmas break.  However, as we know, these are very uncertain times with the possibility of more restrictions being put in place.  Please continue to read the Thunder News Flash weekly, as well as monitor your email closely over the Christmas break, as we will do our best to keep you updated regarding any information about COVID-19 that affects schools.  As you know, our Public Health Officer and the Ministry of Education want to keep schools open, as long as it is safe for staff and students to do so.  Let’s hope and pray that we will be able to open our doors for in-person instruction on January 4th.
