As you may know, the Mary Barrett Memorial Award was established by the staff of St. Francis Xavier to honour the memory of Mrs. Barrett, a treasured teacher who left us far too soon. It is awarded each June to a graduating student who demonstrates a solid work ethic, positive attitude, and consistent effort towards learning; who is responsible, helpful, supportive, and considerate towards others; and, who reflects the Christian values of tolerance, empathy, generosity, and kindness. It is a monetary award (dependent on donations received each year by staff and students) given to a student who has a confirmed acceptance to begin college in September.
Many of Mrs. Barrett’s former students are now parents in our St. F.X. community! If you would like to honour Mrs. Barrett’s memory by making a donation to the award fund, please contact Lori Goodfriend at 613 487 2913 ext. 3 or firstname.lastname@example.org.
