L'école Garneau en fête
Start date: 1 September, 2016
End date: 23 June, 2017
The Garneau school turns 100 in 2016-2017. The architect who built the building (Marchand) is the same that participated in the construction of the building of the Canadian Parliament. Various cultural activities will be established (exhibition, tours of historic discovery, etc.) to publicize local history and its links to Canadian history. This disadvantaged environment in school has a strong multi-ethnic composition: the project will help build bridges in the community. It will promote the elements of a common history (local and Canadian), which contributes to an understanding between the citizens of the district. In addition, activities will be offered to young people from school, their families and neighborhood: allowing everyone to mark this double anniversary.
