RND puts "Faith in Action"

June 01, 2015

Students in front of the school in Kingston, JamaicaSeventeen students and five staff from Regiopolis-Notre Dame Catholic High School recently returned from a life-changing six day trip to Kingston, Jamaica.

With over 90% humidity and 35 degree heat each day, students put their "Faith in Action" through various service opportunities at locations sponsored by the Catholic charity "St. Patrick's Foundation" which provides support in some of the most disadvantaged areas of Kingston Jamaica. 

Students assisted in the classrooms of 120 pre-school students in Riverton, tutored the older students at St. Margaret's remedial school, where the students face numerous academic and social challenges. They also visited the elderly at St. Monica's, playing guitars, pampering the ladies with manicures and reading words of comfort from the bible.  They helped "Food for the Poor Jamaica" build a home for a woman in her 80's who lived too far from the main road to access help in times of trouble or rain.   

  The students were also fortunate to spend time with the young people from the disadvantaged neighbourhood of 'Seaview Garden's' who are part of a performing arts band. The band entertained students with their songs and dance.

One night after an especially full day of work in the schools, Grade 12 student Alexandra Horeczy commented: "If sweat were love.... then we have loved much!"

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.
