Jasper or Banff Ski Trip 

 

This opportunity includes junior high students as our school annually visits Lake Louise (Banff) or Marmot Basin (Jasper) for a two night/two ski day trip. This has proven to be a highlight of the school year and our trip is booked through Magic Bus Tours. Students take manditory lessons each day and evenings include dining out and possibly a swim in one of the local pools. Due to the small population of our school, we have often joined with another school to make this trip financially possible. Information for the upcoming year will be given out to students shortly. Contact Mr. Fahlman for more information.

 

 Camp Encounter

In September of each school year our junior high students take part in the Camp Encounter experience located on Lac La Nonne Alberta.  The 2 day, one night excursion includes archery, wall climbing, rope challenges, survival games, capture the flag and canoeing.  Our Catholic faith and several team building activites are also part of the theme of this remarkable 2 day experience.  Our students look forward to Camp Encounter each year and what a great way to start off the school year!

 Terry Fox Run

In September of each school year Holy Redeemer holds our annual Terry Fox Run.  Students meet for assembly in the gym where we celebrate Terry Fox, view videos of past Terry Fox Runs, and prepare to go outside and participate.  In 2014 our school raised approx. $5000 which is truly remarkable considering the student population. We even had a visit from Terry Fox's brother, Fred, to get our run started! Once outside, the students walk or run our circuit for the next 1.5 hours.  Believe it or not, many students run for the entire time!  Afterwards there are refreshments and popsicles for everyone.  This is a great afternoon where parents, students and teachers all contribute to such a worthy cause.
