Calgary Catholic is happy to partner with the Calgary Flames again this season to offer its students, staff, and families a discounted ticket to a Flames game, while also fundraising for their school, CCSD and the Calgary Catholic Education Foundation.
Due to the success of the program last year, we have added a third CCSD Student Night to choose from. The three nights are:
-Friday, October 27th vs. the Dallas Stars
-Thursday, December 14th vs. the San Jose Sharks
-Wednesday, January 30th vs. the Vegas Golden Knights
CCSD Price: $39/ticket. For every ticket sold the Calgary Flames will donate $10 back to your school. Tickets can be purchased here.
Last season this fundraising program raised over $10,000 for CCSD schools and the Calgary Catholic Education Foundation.
A Close Encounter With Astronaut Robert Thirsk
Former Canadian Space Agency astronaut and University of Calgary chancellor, Dr. Robert Thirsk, discussed his astronaut training and International Space Station expedition at a fundraising event at Bishop Carroll High School, hosted by the Calgary Catholic Education Foundation, on May 23.
In advance of the event, a poster contest was held for Grade 6 and 9 students at the Calgary Catholic School District (CCSD). Students were asked to design objects that would help people survive on Mars. Seventy lucky students had their winning posters selected and had the chance for a meet and greet with the one and only Dr. Robert Thirsk.
A big thank you goes out to everyone who attended, the Foundation and most certainly to you, Dr. Thirsk. This was definitely an educational and inspiring event for all!
