Past Board Members, faculty and Alumni enjoyed a festive reception at a special Board-Staff Reception and Alumni Pub Night. CLICK HERE FOR PHOTOS.
SPICE Kite Day followed with honoured guests, a commemorative video, and 50th Fashion Show! Katherine Livingston, Elaine Danson, Rene Pantalone, and many more joined students for SPICE KITE DAY, dedicated to learning our history. Alumni, former parents, board members, teachers and staff met with students to reflect on their experiences at Montcrest over the past 50 years. Grade 8 students facilitated and recorded these important sessions, now available in the Montcrest Archives. Kite Day T-shirts and a video were presented to honour Montcrest’s most celebrated event.
New mugs, scarves, pins, rulers, pencils, growth charts, tattoos, and street banners celebrated our past throughout the year, along with Decade Grub Days for 60’s, 70’s 80’s, 90’s and ‘2000’s and Beyond’. The 50th Anniversary Club presented Decade bulletin boards and produced “Life at Montcrest” a photo book from our Homecoming Reunion week.
Our 50th Anniversary Steering Committee members supported several Anniversary projects such as Homecoming Reunion Weekend, community events, Montcrest Archives, Community Garden, and ‘From The Heart” Gala.
