Amazing Community Event

The Earl Haig Community Festival was a HUGE success.  20+ cakes won at the cake walk, glitter tattoos, old school games and a talent show that not only showcased our Earl Haig talent, but allowed us to use our fancy new audio gear purchased with the funds from the school council.  Goodbye static and hello Carley Rae Jepson!

Thanks to everyone for volunteering.  Up next?  Our next batch of grade 8s graduate and our new kindergarten students get to meet their teachers!


We Need YOU!

The Earl Haig Community Festival is on Thursday and the organizers are looking for some more helping hands.  Post a comment to the blog, or send an email to with your contact information and the times you are available between 3:30 and 7 and we will most definitely get back to you.

We hope that you will all come out and join in the fun. As always, these kinds of events are successful because of the support of our families.

In the tradition of an Old School Festival, we are bringing back some tried and trues with our:

Cake Walk and Bake Table
Cakes and Baked Goods are still being collected so if you are feeling creative and in a baking mood then please let the School Council know or just show up with your treats the day of.

Win a Jar for $2
This is a fun way for all of the kids to win a prize but it relies on all of you to send in your fun jars filled with new “stuff” – the possibilities are endless

Other Fun Activities:
BBQ – with our talented BBQing guru teachers manning those grills
SpyCaching – with new clues and intrigue
Glitter Tattoos are back by popular demand
Life-Sized Chess Game
Outdoor Games Area

The Craft Zone will feature brand new crafts and the introduction of a Craft Pass – Come and check it out!!

The Earl Haig Old School Community Festival Needs Jars!

GEDSC DIGITAL CAMERAWe’re in the home stretch! The Earl Haig Old School Community Festival is on May 30 — that’s next week — and we need your help!

By popular demand, we are bringing back the JARS! The only catch? We NEED jars filled with cool things and LOTS of them. Starting next week, please bring in to school your jars filled with NEW things.

You can fill your jar with lots of one thing, like marbles, bubble
gum, stickers, balloons, racing cars – or go with a theme jar such as a jar
filled with magic tricks, crafts, outdoor activities – you get the idea.
Get creative and start planning YOUR jar! Jars can be dropped off in the office.

A filled jar can be yours (or your kid’s) for only $2 at our Old School Community Festival — buy a ticket, get a jar. It’s that easy!
