Trinity Pit Stop Theatre Co. Presents...

posted Nov 20, 2017, 7:50 AM by Holy Trinity Catholic High School   [ updated Nov 20, 2017, 7:51 AM ]

The​ ​Trinity​ ​Pit​ ​Stop​ ​Theatre​ ​Co.​ ​presents “Of​ ​Mice​ ​and​ ​Men”

Following the wonderful success of Romeo and Juliet, Othello, Macbeth, Grease, A Midsummer Night’s Dream and Anne of Green Gables, The Trinity Pit Stop Theatre Co. returns with an amazing production of John Steinbeck’s famous story, Of Mice and Men. Ottawa actor and director, Stavros Sakiadis brings to life this impeccable play about those in the great depression and their dreams. This is pulled off by a compact and incredibly talented cast.

A play about a heart-wrenching tale about hope, poverty, loneliness, friendship, and the American dream. This story explores the relationships of those on this troubled ranch. With small and quick-witted George protecting the large, childlike Lennie in their new adventure. In this marvelous play, we also get to take a reflective look at our own society and how we treat others. This beautiful play explores our humanity in an entertaining story about the newcomers on the ranch, and all the trouble that ensues.

Performances of Of Mice and Men are scheduled for December 14th, 15th, and 16th at 7 pm, and is to be performed at 180 Katimavik Road (Holy Trinity Catholic High
School). Tickets are sold for $10 for adults and $8 for students.

“‘Because I got you to look after me... and you got me to look after you’”

Immunization Clinic at Holy Trinity

posted Oct 20, 2017, 11:42 AM by Holy Trinity Catholic High School   [ updated Oct 23, 2017, 5:21 AM ]

Ottawa Public Health will be holding an Immunization Clinic at Holy Trinity on Monday, October 23, Tuesday, October 24, and Wednesday, October 25, 2107.  These vaccines are publicly-funded, and available at no cost to you.

On Monday, October 16, your child received the vaccine consent form(s) from Ottawa Public Health.  Your child needs to return the signed consent form(s) to the school immunization clinic in order to receive the vaccines.  

All students in grade 7 will receive consent forms for the following:

  1. Hepatitis B

  2. Meningococcal Disease Vaccines (Menactra)

  3. Human Papillomavirus (HPV) vaccine

* Please note that students in grade 8 and up who need to receive the grade 7 vaccines (to complete series etc) should present themselves the morning of the clinic, before homeroom, sign their name and room number, then immediately return to class.  These students (if consent is on file) will be called to the clinic throughout the day.

Students need a signed consent to get this vaccine. You are encouraged to talk with your child about the vaccines; and ideally both you and your child should sign the consent form.

On the day of the school clinic, remind your child to:

  • Eat a good breakfast.

  • Bring an extra juice or a snack to school.

  • Wear short sleeves or a loose shirt so that his or her upper arm is exposed easily, without undressing.

  • Bring the signed consent forms with them to the school clinic

Students who miss a clinic will be able to receive the vaccine at the next school clinic.

If you have any questions, please call the Ottawa Public Health at 613-580-6744 and ask to speak to a public health nurse.
