Each month a male and a female student is selected as the SHHS Saint of the Month. Saint of the Month students are nominated by staff and students of SHHS. The selection is based on: Demonstrating Christian Values, School work, School Involvement, Leadership, and Community Involvement.
Rita Fetsch is a kind, thoughtful, considerate person, to both students and teachers, who always puts others first. She continually has excellent grades and is on the honour roll with distinction. She is in AP math and combines high level athletics with academic achievement. In the school, you can find Rita involved in track, cross country, badminton, curling, soccer, choir, SRC and U-ROCK. In the community, she plays soccer, leading both her indoor and outdoor teams to provincial champions. She coaches and officiates soccer, Ukrainian dances with Yorkton Kalyna and has grade 7 piano and will be working on her grade 8. Rita’s leadership shines as yearbook editor, being soccer team captain for Yorkton United and she is a member of the U18 provincial soccer team. At St. Mary’s Ukrainian Catholic church where she regularly attends, Rita is involved in music ministry and is a regular pilgrimage participant.
Josh Ward is a very friendly, patient, happy person who is always helpful. He opens doors for others, always treating everyone equally and with respect. He always notices the good in others and is always extremely exuberant. Josh tries his best in all his work and has attended U-ROCK. He helps sort bottles, puts drinks in the vending machine, participates in school activities and helps out at Sobeys. Josh shows his leadership by always being the first to start a conversation and not being afraid to stand up for other students. During mass he sings and participates with enthusiasm.
Calic Tolentino always has a smile on his face. He recently helped two new Phillipino students by showing them around the school and introducing them to new people. Calic has very high marks (over 80%) in all of the six classes he takes, which includes AP math, history, chemistry, English, phys ed. and high performance 10. He is an amazingly talented artist and designed a mural for the help room wall. He works at Robin’s after school. Calic attends St. Gerard’s every Sunday.
