The Georgian Bay Water Festival
Students working together to protect our water resources
The Georgian Bay Water Festival was a successful event. Ten stations (facilitated by high school students) were set up on the day use beach at Killbear Provincial Park, through which ten groups of 12 elementary students rotated. Each station involved a game or activity with themes related to water technology, protection, conservation, and ecology. At lunchtime, some students participated in a shoreline cleanup and were awarded for “garbage-free lunches”. At the end of the event all students got together to listen to a presentation by high school leaders about the importance of water . At the closing ceremony the elementary students came up with and performed cheers related to what they had learned during the day- a highlight indeed!
