June 12, 2018

HC_Coloured_with_Text.pngCongratulations to Clara Sonnemann, a Grade 12 student at Holy Cross Catholic Secondary School! Clara is a finalist in the senior division of the TeensWrite! contest. 

High school students from the Limestone District School Board and the Algonquin & Lakeshore Catholic District School Board submitted their finest creative writing to Kingston WritersFest’s 9th annual TeensWrite! contest, part of Kingston WritersFest’s Kids & Teens Program. Submissions of fiction, poetry, or creative non-fiction had to include these five words in any grammatical form: awe, comfort, detect, natural, and relinquish.

To read Clara's submissing:

  • Discipleship

    We accept the call to be imitators of Christ by embracing the Beatitudes through authentic witness at the school, community, and global levels. Rooted in our commitment to transmit our Faith and Catholic tradition, we are inspired to build communities dedicated to the formation of young people who recognize their gifts and responsibilities to contribute to the transformation of the world into a more just and loving society for all.

  • Scholarship

    We believe that each student, made in the image and likeness of God and being hope for the future, can be engaged in their learning and achieve at high levels with appropriate supports. We are committed to ensuring that the potential of each student is realized through the achievement of ambitious outcomes and improving in their learning to the highest possible level.

  • Stewardship

    We embrace our responsibilities for the prudent and judicious use of the resources we have been allocated. In our context, we are committed to the development and growth of all employees, responsible and accountable practices and our call to care for all of God's creation.
