This term the administration commissioned a mural depicting the Ontario Catholic Graduate Expectations.

The mural, spanning more than 12 feet, located in the school’s entry way, was designed and painted by Grace Traks, a grade 12 student. The mural depicts the seven OCGE, surrounding a crucified Jesus. The imagery shows that through Jesus’ death, students in the Catholic School system are given the opportunities to develop both in academics and faith.

Congratulations Grace on the completion of your masterpiece mural!

The divine flame of creativity and hard work is evident in every stroke your brush has created.
