Community celebrates the ‘gift of Canada’ at candlelight walk

As we close out Canada’s 150th anniversary, students, staff and community members at Clearview Meadows Elementary School in Stayner decided to celebrate the holiday season by recognizing one of our greatest gifts – the country we live in.

On Dec. 14, the Celebrate Canada Candlelight Walk highlighted the value of living in such a great country. Primary, junior and intermediate students performed Tragically Hip songs in outdoor classrooms, and attendees were invited to bring reusable mugs and plates to honour our natural environment. Once inside, they were asked to travel throughout the school to view each classroom door, decorated to reflect a Canadian province or territory, and to vote on their favourite.
