Each year as summer school comes to a close, we hold a BBQ Fun Day and Showcase for our summer school students and their children.

Work from the two summer courses, Visual Art and Dramatic Arts is displayed and showcased prior to heading outside for a BBQ and some fun outdoor activities. This is a wonderful opportunity for our summer school students to celebrate their achievements, and to enjoy a special event with their children.

The BBQ Fun Day included children’s games, pony rides, a visit from local firemen and their truck, a fun photo booth, and a delicious buffet of burgers, salads, watermelon, ice cream cones and refreshing beverages.

Youville Centre volunteers as well as volunteers from MBNA and TELUS helped us to make this day special for our young moms and their children.
