It’s a match made for the bees. Students in Mrs. Burch’s grade 10 religion class teamed up with the elementary Life Skills students under the direction of Mrs. Chalut to make beeswax lip balm.
Both groups have been learning about the importance of protecting bees in today’s environment. They have grown plants that attract bees by promoting pollination and then decided to partner up and take it a step further.
The lip balm will be given to the mothers of the students as a kind gesture for Mother’s Day and the Business students, who are now inspired by the work of this class have started a “save the bees” campaign complete with t-shirts that will be made by our students in Open Doors and then sold to students throughout the building to raise awareness of bee education.

Sudbury Catholic District School Board hosted its first ever Diversity Day for secondary students on Friday, May 5th, with the goal of breaking down stereotypes and supporting all students in our schools, in particular racialized students. The morning was spent meeting with young people from different cultures and learning about their experiences living and attending school in Sudbury. We also spent time examining who has power in our world and what we can do in the face of oppression, colonialism and white privilege. The afternoon was work time, where each high school got together with school mates and determined a campaign to bring their learning of diversity back to their schools.
A beautiful day of learning and action, determining “what we all share” as we move forward towards a more equitable future for all!
Several Sudbury Catholic School students won during the Turning Points Essay contest. Winners were from St. Anne, St. Benedict Catholic Secondary School, Marymount Academy and St. Charles College.
