Celebrated The Kick Off To Dearcroft’s 50th Anniversary Festivities with a local Pub Night Event

‘AN EVENING OF CELEBRATION AND WINTER BLUES’

On Thursday March 1st, at the Moonshine Cafe in Kerr Village Dearcroft Montessori alumni, friends, and families gathered to chase away the ‘Winter Blues’... while celebrating Dearcroft’s 50th Anniversary and spring’s imminent arrival!

MC for this milestone gathering was long time friend of Dearcroft and resident of Oakville… CBC/Hockey Night In Canada broadcasting host, Ron MacLean.

Dearfriend’, Mike Branton, one of Canada’s finest blues guitarists provided our musical entertainment with some great blues and classic tunes.

We raised money that evening to support a new scholarship honouring the memory of globally acclaimed documentary film maker Rob Stewart, a close friend of Dearcroft who died tragically in a scuba diving accident last year in Florida filming while filming a sequel to his remarkable movie, Sharkwater… a stunningly powerful film that alerted the world to the plight of sharks, the barbaric and unsustainable practice of shark finning and the emerging environmental crisis in the world’s oceans.

He inspired our students and people around the world through the brilliance of his work. At Dearcroft we are very excited to be developing a new collaboration with Dalhousie University’s Ocean School, a program educating Grade 6-8 students about coastal management, ocean pollution, climate’s affect on the oceans and conservation of marine species.

We can’t wait to celebrate with all of our ‘dearfriends’, ‘dearalumni’ and ‘dearfamilies’ on June 15th, 2018 for our big bash! More details to follow!

 

Former Student, Rachel Worton, comes back to Dearcroft Montessori as a Teacher’s Assistant.

Thank you Mr. Henderson, WWII veteran and Lancaster pilot, for helping us gain an appreciation of the atrocities of war. Your story awed our class, and has inspired us to become peace makers. We are honoured you took the time to respond to our questions, and will continue to share your story.
