Students, staff celebrate Chris Hadfield PS construction blast off

It was windy and a bit chilly, but spirits were high as a group of Chris Hadfield Public School students and staff gathered near the construction site to celebrate the building of their new school.

Instead of having a typical ground breaking ceremony, the event was a tribute to Commander Hadfield and his work in space—complete with an astronaut and high-flying rockets. Students shared their memories of their time at the school over the past year, with the highlights being a Skype chat with Hadfield and the Grade 6 class getting the chance to hear from him in person.

Check out the video of the official construction blast off and photos of the day.
