It’s a chance to celebrate the positive impact two Cornwall schools have had on generations of students in the community.
Cornwall Ontario — Both Gladstone Public School (GPS) and East Front Public School (EFPS) will host separate “Farewell Festivals” on Thursday, June 23, 2016 to celebrate the history of their respective schools and to focus on the coming year and the joy of joining a new combined school community in September, when Bridgewood Public School (BPS) opens its doors.
GPS will host its festival for the public from 3:00 p.m. to 5:00 p.m. Principal Chad Brownlee says the event will feature carnival games, an inflatable slide and obstacle course, face painting, a barbecue and a photo booth where families can gather to take one last picture at Gladstone for their photo albums. The event will also feature a memorabilia display.
EFPS will host its closing party from 4:00 p.m. – 6:00 p.m. The event will include a bouncy house, and an inflatable slide and obstacle course. The school will provide a barbecue for guests supported by M&M Meat Shop, and will be selling hotdogs and hamburgers. The school will also provide free popcorn and snow cones, and memorabilia will be on display.
