One of the most beloved traditions at St. Patrick School in London is the annual Halloween walk from the school to the London Health & Rehabilitation Center. Nearly all of the students dress in costume, make the short walk to the center, then parade through the halls, bringing cheer to residents and staff.
For the past two years, the school has been unable to do this community outreach due to COVID-19 restrictions, but they got the green light to revive the tradition this year, doing so on Oct. 28.
“This is always a fun time of the year for our students, and we all wanted to spread that joy around to the rest of the community, particularly to our seniors who are facing some adversity in their life right now,” said Principal Rick Logue.
