Niagara-on-the-Lake Living Flag
Start date: 19 September, 2016
End date: 19 September, 2016
More than 1300 local elementary school students, wearing red or white t-shirts, gathered together to form the Canadian flag at the historic Navy Hall on the grounds of Fort George. Students, teachers, principals and volunteers made this a very special experience.
Nature of the Project Reach
Four local elementary schools participated with a total of 1300 students. The schools: Crossroads Public School, Saint Michael Catholic Elementary School, St Davids Public School and Royal Oak Community School.
A fun event that was made meaningful and memorable for the students. This was the kick-off event for the NOTL150 Committee's many events in celebration of Canada's sesquicentennial. It took place in September of 2016 so the teachers could incorporate this into lesson plans in 2017.
