Students and staff at École Sir
William Osler School shared a hearty and healthy meal together on Oct. 6 to
The feast marked the first official
Thanksgiving meal at the school since it formally reopened as a French Immersion
school in 2015.
Students were not just diners for
the meal—they also got to help prepare the feast.
“Every single class and our daycare
all contributed and made something for the meal,” said Principal Karen
Nursery and kindergarten students
made potato casserole and cranberry sauce, Grade 1 students made an apple
crisp, and the Grade 2 and 3 students made a salad.
As luck would have it, one of the
school’s parents is a professional chef; he prepared delicious turkey and gravy
for the occasion.
“It was great that everyone was
able to contribute,” Ms. Loveridge said. “We have lots of parent volunteers who
helped to serve lunch to all of the children as well.”
The school, which was initially
opened to accommodate students from the extensively renovated École
LaVérendrye, is currently Nursery to Grade 3.
Sir William Osler is now an
educational institution in its own right; the school will add Grade 4 and
further grades each subsequent year.
“We have our own catchment, our own
students and our own families now,” Ms. Loveridge said. “There’s huge demand
for French Immersion…we continue to grow and get bigger and bigger.”
Although the school has only
reopened for a few short years, it has a long history.
The school was originally built in
1955, and named after Canadian physician William Osler. In 1957, the school was
expanded to include four more classrooms.
The first incarnation of the school closed in 1991, but has since
undergone extensive renovations for its 2015 reopening.
