Christ the King is very grateful for the incredibly generous donation made by the local Newfoundland Club chapter to the Nutrition for Learning program at Christ the King. We were pleasantly surprised when Mr. Squires came by one morning to give our students and NFL program a donation that is sure to make a difference in CTK’s healthy snack program. Thank you very much Newfoundland Club!

CAT-4 is a standardized test which measures achievement in the basic skills generally taught in schools across Canada. CAT is a set of tests on reading, mathematics, language, writing and spelling. The results of students tested with CAT are compared with those obtained from large, representative samples of students from across Canada.

In addition to its use by schools, part of CAT has been chosen by statistics Canada as the basis for tracking achievement over time.
