Fun Fair - Event Leaders
The Fun Fair Committee is looking for engaged community members to help take on leadership roles in a few key areas, both during the Fun Fair on Saturday, June 15th and in the days leading up to the event. Please visit this web post for details. Whether you can commit to two hours or two weeks to volunteer, we can use your help! 

In preparation for Fun Fair, we are translating our info package. Please let us know if you are able to help provide translation in Gujarati, Cantonese, Tamil or Bengali.

Learning Garden Cleanup

Date: Saturday, June 1, 2019 (rain date is Sunday, June 2)
Time: 10:00am - 12:00pm
Place: The Learning Garden*

Bring the kids and spend a fun morning outside with your neighbours, getting Wilkinson’s Learning Garden ready so students can plant seedlings, learn and enjoy nature this spring!

Thanks to Wilkie dad, Eric Malcolmson, and his company, Spruced Up Property Beautification Services, this year’s garden cleanup will have extra tools on hand for volunteers, along with yard waste bags … and Starbucks Coffee!

Just bring your:

  • garden tools – like spades, shovels, rakes, and pruning shears
  • garden gloves
  • energy and enthusiasm!

If you have any extra native plants that you’d like to donate to help beautify the garden, please bring them along!

* The Garden is located along the north side of the school, near the fenced-in Kindergarten playground.

If you have questions about this event, please contact The Greening Committee at
