Immaculata Regional High School is excited to be celebrating their 60th Anniversary this school year. The 2020-21 school year marks 60 years of fostering faith and students' academic and personal excellence in the Immaculata school community. Celebrating a special anniversary during these Covid times is not ideal, but the staff and students at Immaculata have found some unique ways to honour the school's history and commemorate this achievement.
While this school year is proving to look a little bit different than the last 59 years, the Immaculata spirit is strong. Current students and staff are remembering its rich history throughout the year, praying for the health, safety and well-being of alumni, while highlighting the stories of those who played a big role in building the success of Immaculata. Profiles of former staff and students are being shared on the school website, in the school newsletter and on Immaculata's social media pages. Staff and students have also pledged to complete 60 acts of service this year, in support of the greater community of Kelowna and fellow citizens, with projects aimed at helping the less fortunate, children experiencing trauma, and local elderly parishioners, to name a few.
At Immaculata, the mission is to encourage students to develop a life-long love for learning with the skills required to do so. With that in mind, a 60th Anniversary Legacy Project has been launched as part of the celebrations to ensure the best learning opportunities for students in the years to come. The Mustang Learning Commons Legacy project will continue to evolve the school library as a space with innovative tools and resources to encourage communication, investigation, and literacy of all types: citizen, digital, and traditional.

Thank you and blessings to all who continue to share their prayers and support for Immaculata Regional High School and its community. In this challenging year with masked students and no school-wide gatherings, we are grateful to be in school together - but apart.
