Art Tree Project- Canada’s 150th Birthday

Art Tree Project- Canada’s 150th Birthday

David Cameron students in grades K-5 have volunteered to be part of the Art Tree project which is part of the celebration of Canada’s 150th birthday. As part of Canada’s 150th birthday celebration the City of Colwood was sponsoring the Art Tree project for schools in Colwood. David Cameron students worked with an artist to create their vision of a tree that represents our school community. Our Art tree project will be part of a display at City Hall as well as touring to different venues. David Cameron’s Art Tree can be viewed at the West Coast Art Collective on April 19th. The project will also be featured at Arttreeproject.ca.

Nature Kindergarten

Held at Sangster Elementary School, the Nature Kindergarten program in SD62 was one of the first of its kind in Canada when it was first piloted in September 2012. Its popularity and success have turned the program into a yearly option for parents.

Students spend a half-day outside every morning, rain or shine, in natural settings (primarily on the property of Royal Roads University). Children then return to school for their lunch and remain in the classroom during the rest of the afternoon for indoor learning.

Parents must attend one of the information sessions listed prior to registering their child into Nature Kindergarten:

Dates to be announced

Registration for Nature Kindergarten opens on Monday, January 23 beginning at 8 a.m.

Parents can register online or in-person at their neighbourhood school. If registering online, please select Nature Kindergarten as your preference. Parents who wish to register in person must do so at their catchment school and submit a request for Nature Kindergarten.

As this program typically fills up within the first day of registration, parents are encouraged to register for Nature Kindergarten as close as possible to the opening time of registration.
