As you may know, CHEO is celebrating its 40th anniversary this year and this year the hospital is having the first ever open house for the public on June 7. There will be opportunities to go “behind the scenes”, including the operating room, science labs in the Research Institute building, and so much more.

Here is a link with more details:

We are very proud to announce that WEJ’s Walkathon for CHEO, which took place Friday May 16th, raised a grand total of $8,112.03.

On June 7th and 8th, be sure to tune in to CTV for CHEO’s annual telethon. Of special note, at 5:04 pm on Sunday, June 8th, Mrs. Maxsom-Hunt (Kindergarten), Ms. Cowan (Grade 1), and Ms. Cleiman (Grade 1) will be presenting a cheque to CHEO of the money raised.

Thank you WEJ community for being “superheroes for CHEO” and helping to make a difference in the life of a child.

WEJ’s Recess Guitar Club

This past Sunday evening, twenty grade 5 and 6 students from WEJ’s Recess Guitar Club performed at the Kanata Volunteer Awards Banquet, having been invited by Councillor Marianne Wilkinson.  Wearing their new Concert Tee shirts, designed by RGC member Ellie Waisglass, the group performed a half hour set, which included such songs as “Let It Go”, “Say Something”, “We Are Never Getting Back Together”, “Royals”, and “Best Day of My Life”.

Way to Go Recess Guitar Club!

Come Join Us at the Lone Star !


Please come out and join your fellow students at the Kanata Lone Star restaurant all night on this coming Tuesday, April 29 and help raise funds for WEJ School Council!

It is as easy as going to the restaurant that night, or getting a take out order, and telling your server that you are with WEJ Council.  Lone Star will donate 10% of your family’s bill back to the school!  Look for your ticket coming home or just go to the restaurant on Tuesday night!”

We look forward to seeing you there!
