Over the next few weeks, as we approach Canada’s 150th birthday on July 1, we’re highlighting some of the Canada 150 celebrations at schools across the SCDSB.
A sea of red and white could be seen everywhere you looked around Stayner Collegiate Institute (SCI) on May 18 as they hosted A Canadian Celebration event for their students and Grade 7 and 8 students from Clearview Meadows E.S., Byng P.S., Nottawasaga Creemore P.S. and New Lowell P.S.
Students enjoyed a day filled with a wide variety of workshops, activities and games including crokinole and other Canadian board games, floor hockey, football, lawn bowling, maker spaces, butter tart baking, art activities and a Great Canadian Bake Sale.
The backdrop to the day’s events were the stunning gardens blooming with 2,150 red and white tulips offered to the school from Canada’s Garden Council in conjunction with Vesey’s Bulbs of PEI. SCI’s garden is one of 149 gardens planted across Canada linked to a flagship 150th Celebration Garden Promenade in Niagara Falls.

From the artwork on the walls, to the tulips blooming in the gardens and the smiling faces of students and staff enjoying the celebration, every detail of the event was truly special for all who attended and very Canadian, eh?
