ST. CATHARINES – Not many people can claim they have “faceswapped” with Prime Minister Justin Trudeau.
Holy Cross Secondary School teacher J.P. Dupont can. The music teacher received a national award for teaching last month, earning him the opportunity to meet with Trudeau during a special celebration in Ottawa – and the chance to swap faces while taking a selfie. Dupont was one of nine recipients from across Canada to receive the 2015 Prime Minister’s Award for Teaching Excellence.
“J.P. represents the very best of Catholic educational excellence,” said John Crocco, director of education with the Niagara Catholic District School Board. “Having witnessed J.P.’s vocational call to Catholic education first hand, I can attest to the fact that he nurtures student experiences through his creative and inspiring lessons.”
A special assembly was held at Holy Cross to allow students and staff the opportunity to celebrate Dupont’s accomplishment. With words from Crocco and Holy Cross principal Denice Robertson, the event also included performances by two of the choirs that Dupont directs and a special video presentation prepared by staff and students.

ST. CATHARINES — In an attempt to shatter the stigma surrounding mental health, drama students at Holy Cross Secondary School did what they do best – perform.
As part of the drama program’s curriculum, students from Grades 11 and 12 are required to work together on a collaborative final project. Drawing from the school’s Let’s Talk HC campaign aimed at raising awareness around the issue of mental health, the students decided to focus on the stigma surrounding it and the need to shatter it. The end result was Shattered, a play written and performed by students at the school.
“They did a lot of research in putting this play together. It was a great experience for them because they learned a lot of mental health issues, things they didn’t know before,” said Melanie Contini, arts program chair at Holy Cross. “They learned about the symptoms and the different ways mental health illnesses can manifest, like sometimes people won’t even know they have an illness for a long time. Then one day, they’ll realize they have a problem and they need help.”
