Happy World Teachers’ Day! The Foundress of the Sisters of the Holy Names of Jesus and Mary believed that, “an entire society can be changed when the hearts and minds of young women are properly formed.” The Academy is blessed to have over 40 amazing teachers who work diligently to form the hearts and minds of young women. SMA salutes all of our teachers today, on World Teachers’ Day! #WorldTeachersDay #WorldTeachersDay2018 #SMATeachers
Mother Marie-Rose (MMR) Week festivities are rolling along at the Academy! This morning MMR Mass was celebrated with Fr. Sam Argenziano presiding, and with many Sisters in attendance. Fr. Sam’s poignant homily was capped off with a charming moment when he blessed our new betta fish, Flame. Following Mass, 'Super Sixer' pins were presented to Grade 12 students who have been at SMA since grade 7 (and Mrs. Klus and Mrs. Swayzie gave a special shout out to all Grade 12s, regardless of how many years they have been students at the Academy). A lovely brunch for the Sisters and student representatives followed Mass. And, in keeping with tradition, a student dressed as MMR joined the gatherings. #mmrweek2018 #SNJM @sistersoftheholynames @archdioceseofwinnipeg
The Academy has provided exceptional education for young women for 149 years. We're a Catholic school in the tradition of the Sisters of the Holy Names of Jesus and Mary. Our goals are that each graduate leaves the school empowered with knowledge, an awareness of her gifts, a desire for excellence in all endeavours, and a sense of social responsibility to use her gifts in service and generosity to others. Please join us at our Open House on January 15, 2019—you’ll hear short presentations and then you are welcome to tour our campus and meet students, parents, faculty and staff. Everyone is welcome! #girlsschool #education
