 St. James Collegiate’s Envirothon teams recently participated at the Oak Hammock Marsh Regionals.  
They spent the day identifying trees, naming animal calls, gathering samples in hip waders, testing soil, planning solutions for current environmental problems 
and much more.  
The day concluded with a trail test in the rain and a presentation to a panel of judges.  
The teamwork and effort of all members was incredible.

You're A Good Man, Charlie Brown - The Musical!

St. James Collegiate was proud to present, "You're A Good Man, Charlie Brown", the musical, from April 11-13th.  This musical was very special in that it was the first musical to be produced
 at SJCI in close to 20 years!  
We would like to thank everyone who came out and supported this 
amazing effort by both students and staff.


Charles Schulz’s beloved comic comes to life in Clark Gesner’s classic musical, You’re a Good Man, Charlie Brown. The whole gang is here: bossy Lucy is hopelessly in love with piano prodigy Schroeder who doesn’t give her the time of day, perfectionist Sally is still mocking blanket-toting Linus, Snoopy is in the doghouse, and “blockhead,” himself, Charlie Brown, is in rare form. Brief vignettes span the months from Valentine’s Day to Beethoven Day, from wild optimism to utter despair. In this revised version, with additional music and lyrics by Andrew Lippa and dialogue by Michael Mayer, the sweet, joyful innocence of the Peanuts gang is maintained, but a fresh insouciance and playfulness is revealed. The new script features two new songs, particularly funny dialogue, and new, catchy orchestrations. Whether you’re keen to fly with the Red Baron, moon over the Moonlight Sonata, or just do your best to find “Happiness,” You’re a Good Man, Charlie Brown is a crowd-pleasing classic.

Winnipeg Parking Authority Notice

For Immediate Release
Tuesday, April 4, 2017

Winnipeg Parking Authority campaign encourages drivers to “Be Aware. Park with Care” around schools, fire lanes and designated spaces

Campaign aims to educate drivers prior to WPA mailing out tickets for parking violations

Winnipeg, MB – Today, the Winnipeg Parking Authority (WPA) launched its “Be Aware. Park with Care” campaign which encourages drivers to follow parking laws when stopping or parking around schools, fire lanes and designated parking spaces. The campaign aims to educate drivers about the parking rules in these high-offense areas prior to the WPA beginning to mail out parking tickets on May 1, 2017.

“Parking illegally around schools, in fire lanes and in designated parking spaces can cause serious safety concerns, traffic delays and inconvenience,” said Councillor Cindy Gilroy, Chair of the Standing Policy Committee on Innovation. “I’m pleased to see the Winnipeg Parking Authority take the initiative to educate the public and emphasize that these spaces are saved for something more important than your convenience.”

The campaign features several videos that will be used to supplement a social media campaign, radio spots, newspaper advertising as well as targeted communication with schools and parents.

“Illegally parked vehicles during school pick up and drop offs create serious safety hazards for children and cause traffic delays,” said Councillor Brian Mayes, the City’s Liaison for School Boards & Youth Opportunity. “I am thrilled the Winnipeg Parking Authority is launching this campaign and working with schools to address these concerns.”

Similarly, the campaign notes that illegally parked cars in fire lanes, whether at a shopping mall, grocery store, community centre or other public venue, can also cause safety issues.

“It’s vital that fire lanes remain free and clear of any parked cars so that we can respond quickly to emergency situations,” said Assistant Chief Mark Reshaur, Winnipeg Fire Paramedic Service. “Whether it’s a fire or a medical emergency, seconds count so please pay attention to signage and do not park in fire lanes.”

Also highlighted in the campaign are designated parking spaces which are reserved for persons with a physical disability and a properly displayed current permit.
