Mr. John Ryan


Welcoming Days at St. Gabriel School

The students at St. Gabriel School were welcomed back to school with several activities. On Sept. 2nd Geordie Productions performed a dress rehearsal of their play, “Not so Dumb”. On Sept. 9th Mr. John Ryan, former director of Pedagogical Services with the EMSB, made a guest appearance. Mr. Ryan gave the students a motivational talk on being in control of their actions and doing their very best every day. He then followed with a literacy ‘Read Aloud’ picture book activity where the choice of books read to the students reflected his theme. Mr. Ryan was a big hit and the students unanimously voiced their desire to have a return visit. A Hot Dog lunch, donated by Generations Foundation, followed. A great time was had by all!
