Feast with friends

Students and staff at École Sir William Osler School shared a hearty and healthy meal together on Oct. 6 to mark Thanksgiving.

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 Loveridge.

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.
