KASSAA Teams in Action
Kudos to the Senior Boys Volleyball team for giving KCVI the blues yesterday and keeping their cool in a very hot gym. the boys have a 4 and 0 record to date. Keep it going guys.
The Holy Cross Crusaders field hockey team was victorious over the Sydenham Golden Eagles 2 -1 in an extremely tense and hard fought game. Skylee Ryan bagged the first goal on a scramble in front of the net and the game winner was scored by Ange DeSousa who redirected a hard pass from Laura Collings. Everyone played so well! Way to go girls!

Well done team! Next up KASSAA championships!

The 2014 PH Classic
On July 21, 1997 Regiopolis Notre-Dame lost one of its greatest supporters. Paul Halligan died of cancer after a two-year battle with the disease. Paul was a graduate of RND, a basketball and football coach, an organizer of the Alumni Association, founder of the Irish Ontario Basketball Club, and the driving force behind the Peter Carty Memorial. Above all else, Paul was a devoted member of the school community, continually demonstrating his Christian call to service. He was a man of faith who spread the message of the Gospel through the example of his life and the teachings he passed on to the members of his teams, or anyone who was touched by his work. He showed us what could be achieved with dedication and determination; what joys can be derived from self-sacrifice; what strength there is in warmth and kindness; and what power there is in accepting the will of the Lord. He lived a vocation of service and our school communities are blessed to have known him and have been touched by his life.
October is Breast Cancer Awareness month; therefore we have decided to focus our efforts in this direction. This year alone 25,000 women will develop breast cancer and 5,500 of these women will die from this disease. We are hopeful that through your donations, we will continue the progress in “SHOOTING FOR A CURE!”
These games are played in honor of Paul Halligan who was very involved in girls basketball at Regi and Holy Cross. Paul felt that girls should have the same opportunities as boys.
The games will take place at Regiopolis Notre-Dame on Thursday, October 23, beginning at 5 pm.
