The Walk Out of Poverty
Many of the students, faculty and family members of St. Columban School participated in Concern America's annual "Walk Out of Poverty" in Fountain Valley. For the last two weeks they have been collecting donations and were able to contribute over $3,000 for the walk. Pictured here are some of those from our school who participated. We thank all those who contributed and walked this year.
St. Columban School Does it Again!
At Chapman University on Friday March 8, 2013, it was announced at the Fourteenth Annual Holocaust Art and Writing Contest Awards Ceremony, that eighth grader Kaitlyn Pham was the First Prize winner in the middle school division, prose category. This is the fourth time St. Columban School has been a prize winner in this contest and rounds out wins in all three categories, art, poetry and prose. Mrs. Thelma Anselmi, our Junior High Language Arts Teacher, has included the Holocaust education in her curriculum here at St. Columban School and we have the unique distinction of participating in each of the fourteen years of this contest.
Kaitlyn’s essay, which may be viewed on the school website, is based on the testimony of now 77 year-old Ursula Levy, who at a young age was imprisoned with her family in Sachsenhausen concentration camp. Levy kept her spirits up by singing, something she credits to her mother’s example.
In addition to the First Place monetary prize of $500.00, Kaitlyn receives an all- expense paid study trip to Washington DC in June for herself, a parent, and her teacher, Mrs. Anselmi. Congratulations, Kaitlyn and Mrs. Anselmi!
