Festival of Lights - A focus on celebrations around the world and how heritage is passed through community celebrations such as St Nicholas Day, Eid al-Fitr, Hannukkah and the Festival of the Three Kings among others (celebrations change each year). Activities include stories, games, a festive treat and a take home craft.


Cultures of the County - Modern Wellington County was built by various communities and traditions. Students will look at four diverse groups and how they helped to shape the County we live in today. The Attawandaron First Nation, Black Canadian settlement of the Queens Bush, Scottish, and Dutch cultures will all be celebrated for how they helped develop our modern Canada.
