Graduates should have made an appointment with their guidance counsellor to go over grad and post-secondary requirements. The early deadline for proof of community service is Friday October 20. Handing in your proof early earns your house points and gives you the chance to win a free grad gown rental or a free grad picture sitting fee.
November 10th is the deadline to hand in your grad profile and pay the $30 grad gown rental fee. Graduate profiles should be completed as soon as possible. Scholarship and bursary opportunities have already been sent to grads who have handed in their profiles.

Staff, students and former Falcons welcomed teams from Eastern Ontario as Holy Trinity and St. Joseph’s hosted the 1st Annual Elizabeth Denis Memorial Basketball Tournament, formerly known as the Panther/Falcon Classic Girls Basketball Tournament. The tournament was renamed in honor of Elizabeth, Class of 2007, who captained the senior girls basketball team for three years and helped open our new gym in 2004 by taking our first ceremonial jump ball. She lived her life as a leader, in high school as a student, athlete and artist, and after leaving the Falcon’s nest, as a teacher and advocate who educated thousands who followed her on her “Lizzie’s lungs” health blog and Facebook page on how lung cancer can affect anyone.
All proceeds from the tournament will go towards an annual bursary awarded at Holy Trinity and St. Joseph’s in Elizabeth’s name, celebrating excellence in academics, arts & athletics.
Pictured below, Robyn and Louis Denis, Elizabeth’s parents, and Holy Trinity and St. Mary’s captains take the ceremonial jump ball.
