To all of our Centennial Alumni:  We are now at the stage where we need our former staff and students to register for the Saturday night event at the Sleeman Centre.  Your early registration will help us to order ample food and drinks, as well as the appropriate number of Sleeman Centre staff for this licensed event. There is no cost to register; however, we would greatly appreciate any donation you would like to make, as they will offset the cost of the evening. We will have a table set up at the door to accept donations.  Once the costs are covered, all other funds will be put towards a general scholarship fund for our graduates.  

On the homepage, you will find a sign in/register button on the right hand side of the homepage.  Your first step is to register on the Centennial Alumni page, using your graduating year.  For staff, you can select the year you retired from teaching.  Once registered, click on the 50th reunion link found at the top navigation bar.  On the 50th reunion page, you will find the link for registration.  Please pass this information along to anyone who wishes to attend the event.

Centennial CVI students in the gender studies class are spreading an important message about loving your body

Love Your Body

Students said that at some point in everyone’s life they feel insecure about their body and find it hard to love themselves. Loving your body can be a very difficult thing and is especially challenging for many high school students. This served as the inspiration for the Love your Body campaign.  Learning to love yourself is one of the most important steps to happiness and these students are doing a great job spreading this positive message to the community.

Avoid school suspension by keeping immunization records up-to-date!

Student’s immunization records must be provided to Public Health in order to attend school. In the next few weeks, Public Health will be sending notices to students with incomplete immunization records.  Anyone who gets a notice should contact their family doctor so they can update their vaccines, and then report their new vaccines to Public Health.   Report every vaccine to Public Health using one of the following methods:  Online: Fill in the form at http://www.immunizewdg.ca or  Email: Send a photo of the immunization record to vaccine.records@wdgpublichealth.ca  or Call: 1-800-265-7293 ext. 4396.   If a student is not getting vaccinated for medical reasons, reasons of conscience or religious beliefs, an exemption form must be submitted to Public Health. The forms are available at http://www.wdgpublichealth.ca   Public Health is committed to helping students update their vaccination records so they can avoid suspension from school.
