What is history? An echo of the past in the future; a reflex from the future on the past-Victor Hugo

On April 7th, students from Ms. Cavar’s Grade 12 Law class participated in the annual Mock Trail at the Thunder Bay Courthouse. Our students emerged victorious against the team from Superior. Congratulations go out to lawyers Jessica Goettlicher, Jordana Casasanta and Bailey Hoard, victim and witness Jon Watts and witness Kailyn Haner. Jessica was named best lawyer at the trial. Great job everyone!

From April 5th to 15th, 23 students from St. Patrick journeyed to Europe to participate in the 100th anniversary of the Battle of Vimy Ridge. Travelling alongside students and teachers from St. Ignatius, the group was led by Mr. Battistel, Ms. Caza and Mr. Marcon. In addition to the Vimy commemorations, which was held on April 9th and attended by upwards of 25,000 people, the group visited Amsterdam, Ypres, Albert, Beaumont Hamel, Juno Beach, Honfleur and Paris. The trip was filled with an abundance of European history and culture. You can read a day-by-day account of the trip with photos by checking the archives.
