RENFREW- It’s THAT time of year again! St. Joseph’s annual year Fast is coming up on Tuesday March 20th. Everyone is welcome to the overnight fun filled experience. You stay after school on Tuesday and sleepover into Wednesday. All you need to attend is to collect money donations from family and friends to donate to the Renfrew Hospice and bring one snack or beverage.
The boys and girls will be separated by the divider in the gym when time for bed. In the morning everyone is escorted into the chapel for prayer before eating then during period 1 every student that attended the Fast will be welcomed down into the cafeteria to eat all of the snacks and beverages that were brought. It tends to be very successful every year and loads of fun!
We start off with games of your choice in the gym for a few hours and then leads into a game from student council that involves not only all of the students but also the entire school. Student council hides pieces of a flashlight around the school and everyone runs and tries to find all of the pieces, meanwhile there is 2 people who are ‘it’ and tag people to become ‘it’ as well to make it more difficult to find all of the pieces. This creates a more intense and fun but challenging environment during the game. Then the flashlight is put together the game is over.
Everyone is encouraged to come out and have some fun while making positive contributions to the community. In the past there were tons of memories made and such a positive effect on everyone that they come back every year. Also a little inside scoop from Daniel Cassanto,
“The activities and games were a lot of fun, and from the time it started until it was over everyone was in a great mood!”.
