OLGC e-Newsletter- June 27th, 2018

Dear Parents,

As we break for summer, we wish the best to all our families.  Special thanks to all those families who have shown their generosity and gratitude by supplying us with an abundance of treats, gifts and summer well-wishes.  May you have a wonderful summer spent with family and friends.  We look forward to seeing each one of our students in September to live out our 2018/2019 theme: “What Do You Want Of Me,  Lord?” For those students leaving OLGC School, including our Grade Sevens, the staff and I wish you the best in your future schools. For the rest of you, see you September 4th at 8:45 a.m.
