Up, Up and Away: Corpus Christi School celebrates 100 years

On Friday, 27, 2017 students and faculty of Corpus Christi School released 100 balloons across the street from the school in Warwood’s Garden Park at 11:30 a.m.

“We released balloons for each day of school we have been in session this academic year. It is important to engage our current students in the celebration of our great history at CCS and this is a fun way to do it,” said Principal Dick Taylor.

“Our tradition of excellence in Catholic education dates back 100-years and involves the work and support of so many families, faculty and others, beginning with the incomparable dedication of the Sisters of St. Joseph. Corpus Christi remains an important part of the community. As always, our children are our future and the reason we continue our educational tradition,” he added.

As part of the school celebrating its 100th day of school, students came up with a poem of kindness to place on each a balloon that will be released in the sky.
