As a Catholic school, the Christmas season has always been a special time of year at St. Sebastian’s. In the earliest days, the front page of The Walrus December issue would feature a poignant Christmas message from the headmaster, often accompanied by a cartoon drawn by a student. From Latin Mass to greeting cards, carol singing and holiday drama productions, the Advent season has been celebrated in many different ways over the decades. One of today’s beloved traditions is the Christmas Program, featuring the School’s musical talent.

We hope you enjoy a look back at some of our “Christmas” archives!
