On October 31'st 2013, students from St Benedict Catholic Secondary School visited Holy Cross Catholic Elementary School. Student Council president Brendan Sullivan, vice president and student trustee Mackenzie Connelly, and beloved mascot, Benny the Bear represented St Benedict as they read to grade 1 and 2 students in both English and french. "We thought this would be a great opportunity to bond with the students who share our campus and spread some Halloween cheer," said Connelly.
After reading the books, Benny and the students donated them to Holy Cross and gave out Halloween stickers and high fives from Benny. "This experience has been very rewarding for us. We were able to practice our bilingualism and meet the students who will become future Bears," stated Sullivan. "I look forward to continuing to connect our two school communities."
