Canada 150 – Happy Birthday!

Lakehead Public Schools students celebrated the arts, health and physical activity through creative movement at the 28th annual Lakehead Public Schools Creative Movement Jamboree at the Fort William Gardens on Thursday May 11th. The theme for this year’s Jamboree was “Canada 150 – Happy Birthday!” Lakehead Public Schools students and their families once again be packed the Gardens for a celebration of movement and music.

“The Creative Movement Jamboree is a very special event that all students and staff look forward to every year,” says Jacqueline Nelson teacher at Claude E. Garton Public School and a member of the Creative Movement Jamboree Organizing Committee. “Our student participants are so proud and excited that were able to build our entire program around our country’s 150th birthday!”

The Creative Movement Jamboree is a non-competitive event that gives our students an opportunity to share their talents and interest. Students will be performing a mass routine with all of the participating schools taking part. Each school will also perform their own individual movement dances to the music of their choice. This event continues to highlight the celebration of music, rhythm, movement and dance.

Many came out and supported this non-competitive celebration of movement and music!! The event was free with a coin collection for the Lakehead Public School Foundation or a donation of a non-perishable food item for Shelter House Thunder Bay.
