Fun Events at Our School
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.
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.
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.
