In celebration of Canada’s 150th birthday, Woodlands School will be capturing the essence of Calgary by participating in the Canada 150 Mural Mosaic Project from April 4 to 6, 2017. Woodlands School’s 8’ x 8’ mural will recognize and promote Calgary, its people, and the landscape and how Calgary continues to shape the nation.
Students, staff and invited guests will be designing and painting 4”x 4” tiles depicting iconic Calgary. Lewis Lavoie and his team from Canada 150 Mosaic will be attending Woodlands School for painting, unveiling and celebration.
Veterans Affairs Minister Kent Hehr joined Woodlands School students at an announcement for the Canada 150 celebrations in January. “We want to celebrate together through arts, culture and science. It’s the sticky stuff that keeps us together through all the ups and downs. We want to share our stories and feel connected,” Hehr said at the funding announcement.
This event has been funded by our Woodlands School Council and a grant, under the Celebration and Commemoration Program – Canada 150, from the Federal Government. Painting of the Calgary mural tiles will take place with students and invited guests on April 4 and 5 from 9:00 a.m. to 3:00 p.m. each day.
The final mural unveiling celebration will take place on April 6 at 2:00 p.m. Please join us for the exciting unveiling and the amazing performances from our students as they honour Canada with song and dance!
