December 10, 2007 - St. Anne Catholic School was runner up in the VETAC Ugliest School Yard Competition last spring. The school received a cash prize from Xstrata Nickel to help in its re-greening efforts. The funds were used to purchase sod for the playground, benches, trees, and materials for two large brick agricultural beds in which students from Mrs. Wuksinic’s Grade 2/3 class Ms. MacRury’s JK/SK class planted flowers.

St. Anne Catholic School would like to extend its deepest appreciation to the many families, staff and students who helped make this amazing idea a reality. Thank you also to the local businesses who donated items and/or services. St. Anne Catholic School would also like to recognize and thank Jamie Beauchamp from Xstrata Nickel along with representatives from the business community including Peter Vanderkooy from Botanix Azilda Green Houses and Myrna Bechamp from Ashley’s Landscape Supplies who visited St. Anne Catholic School to view the “final product” and to wish the students well.
