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!
