The Fearsome Pirate Frank

posted Feb 12, 2019, 8:51 AM by Holy Trinity Catholic High School   [ updated Feb 14, 2019, 6:09 AM ]

The Trinity Pit Stop Junior Theatre Co. is proud to present "The Fearsome Pirate Frank" by Pat Lydersen on Thursday, February 28 at 7 p.m. Admission is by donation to the grade 7&8 drama club.  Fun for the whole family!

The star of a popular pirate play — The Fearsome Pirate Frank — is the teenage heartthrob of every girl in Shakespearean England, even though he can’t remember his lines for the life of him!  However, when the actor playing Frank and his supporting cast, including prima donna Esmerelda, get kidnapped by real pirates during one of their productions, it’s good-bye stardom, hello servitude on a real pirate ship!  These pirate actors are now swabbing the decks under the orders of the real pirate Frank, who happens to be a woman. But pirate actors are not the only ones hijacked in this comic romp... so is the plot from a particular popular pirate flick!  In a chilling flashback sequence, the tale of how Captain Frank received the ’Blackmark” comes alive as we see her send her villainous former Captain Davies to walk the plank. But now Davies and his zombie crew are out for revenge…

Vaping and Cannabis

posted Feb 4, 2019, 7:33 AM by Holy Trinity Catholic High School

Please see below an important message from Ottawa Public Health regarding cannabis and vaping products, as well as the attached fact sheets.


Dear Parent(s)/Guardian(s),

Ottawa Public Health (OPH) is concerned about youth using of cannabis and vaping products with e-liquid nicotine. Children and youth are vulnerable to the negative health effects, including addiction. Nicotine and cannabis are known to alter brain development and can affect memory and concentration.

OPH has developed a multi prong approach to prevent the initiation and use of vaping products and cannabis among youth, to inform users of the potential health harms, and protect others from the second-hand effects. Some of the activities include:

  • Preparing and distributing fact sheets to parents and posting information on the Parenting in Ottawa website.

  • Hosting discussions on the Parenting in Ottawa Facebook Page to generate meaningful discussion on vaping and cannabis with parents.

  • Providing in-class presentations to students, hosting school wide assemblies and interactive displays to increase knowledge of the health risks and build decision making skills.

  • Distributing OPH’s resources for school administrators and teachers that discusses the myths and facts of vaping and cannabis.

  • Continuing to engage youth, parents, teachers and others working with youth to develop resources and programs to increase knowledge; and build critical thinking and refusal skills.

  • Working with school boards, school administrators and By-law and Regulatory Services to ensure compliance under the Smoke-Free Ontario Act (SFOA) that prohibits the use of vaping products and smoking cannabis anywhere on school property.

  • A Public Health Nurse (PHN) is assigned to each publicly-funded school in Ottawa. The PHN is available to work with students, parents and school staff to determine the best ways to address vaping and cannabis in a school community.

The teen years are a time when your child may try using a vapour product and/or cannabis. Help them reflect on why they are using and turn it into a learning opportunity. For instance:

  • Be prepared. Make sure you have the facts about cannabis and vaping and plan a few points you want to share including setting expectations.

  • Start the conversation. Take advantage of opportunities such as taking a walk with your teen or using a recent news story. Talk to them about it and then listen to what they say.

  • Reach out for help. Visit ParentingInOttawa.ca/vaping or connect with a Public Health Nurse or parents on Facebook at Facebook.com/ParentingInOttawa. You can also speak with a Public Health Nurse by calling 613-PARENTS (613-727-3687) Monday to Friday from 9:00 a.m. to 4:00 p.m. or emailing ParentingInOttawa@ottawa.ca.

New Exam Schedule, effective January 24, 2019 (12:50 p.m.)


Because of the two snow days that have taken place during our high school exam schedule, we posted a new exam schedule this morning that required some students to write two exams in the same day.  We heard from parents, students and educators who asked us to reconsider this new schedule.  We thank you for sharing your concerns with us and have looked at other options for exam writing.   All exams have now been rescheduled to January 25th, 28th, 29th and 30th.  That is, all exams have been bumped by two days.

  • Exams that were originally scheduled for January 23rd (Period 1 courses) will be written on Friday, January 25th.
  • Exams that were scheduled for January 24th (Period 2 courses) will be written on Monday, January 28th.
  • Exams that were scheduled for January 25th (Period 3 courses) will be written on Tuesday, January 29th.
  • Exams that were scheduled for January 28th (Period 4 courses) will be written on Wednesday, January 30th (a scheduled PD Day).

January 30th remains a PD Day for grade 7 and 8 students.  It is now an exam day for our grade 9 to 12 students.

January 31st will be the first day of the second semester for high school students.

The exam schedules at all schools for all students will be affected (not just for school bus riders).    

OSTA will provide regular bus service on January 30th.

If you have any questions, please call the main office.
