St. James 5th Court
In partnership with the Ottawa Catholic School Board (OCSB) and Corpus Christi (located across the street from the club), St. James has a brand new tennis court which is a smooth black asphalt top with white lines. It is open to St. James members basically at all times when school is not in session, which is after school, on weekends, and in the summer time. We'd like to thank Michael Schreider (former Principal) and Jennifer Grant, current Principal of Corpus Christi, as well as the OCSB for helping to facilitate this project.
Mary Thompson Award
This award was created to honour Mary Thompson, a long-time St. James member and mathematics teacher at Glebe Collegiate. In 2003 we lost Mary to cancer, but her enthusiasm for tennis and her vitality will always be remembered. Please contribute to our annual award which goes to the most improved Glebe math student.
