Fun Events at Our School
Our annual pancake breakfast is typically held around mid-September and starts at 7:30 AM. This is an exciting community gathering to celebrate a new school year. All our school families are invited. Please come join us!
Terry Fox Run Fundraiser
Each September we celebrate Terry’s legacy with an assembly, followed by a school-wide run out in the field. Over the course of the month, students at Braeside collect donations for the Terry Fox Foundation. Last year, our kids proudly raised close to $250.
This is an annual event that celebrates youth making a difference in their local and global communities. This years' theme was using our imaginations to envision ways that we can make the world a better place for all of us. We thought about this by learning to change our thinking from “me” to include others and think about “we”. Students have an opportunity to hear from all sorts of celebrities and high profile speakers and get inspired to take social action, empower others and transform lives including their own.
Each November, Braeside School hosts a Remembrance Day ceremony for students and their families. Poppies are made available for a small donation and students also collect food donations for the Veteran's Food Bank.
For the past four years, Braeside has been hosting a gingerbread night in December. This is an opportunity to come to the school as a family, and build a gingerbread house together. This is a huge community building event for the school and we welcome your participation.
Pink Shirt Day
This is a day in February when we encourage all of our students to wear pink to symbolize that we are a community that practices kindness and acceptance towards both others and ourselves!
The idea of Pink Shirt Day started from two incredible Nova Scotia high school students in 2007 and is now celebrated worldwide. Through their campaign this year, we encourage everyone to “Make Nice”. We all have the capacity to be kind and compassionate, and their slogan acts as a friendly reminder that no matter what our differences, being nice is always a choice worth making.
If it wasn’t for our volunteers, we would not be able to provide our students with many of the experiences that they have. Volunteer Tea is an event held in April and is a way our students show appreciation and celebrate our amazing volunteers.
