A new flag will soon be hanging at the Pat O’Reilly Outdoor and Environmental Education Site at Gwillim Lake

Flag Contest Winner

School District No. 59 recently held a contest inviting students from across the district to submit a flag design for the outdoor recreation site at Gwillim Lake. Students were asked to submit a design that was a colourful representation of all the Gwillim site has to offer.  In addition, students were required to provide a written description, outlining why they chose the images and colours they used for their design. The descriptions were as much fun to read as looking at the beautiful artwork!  In total, 64 submissions were received making the process to select one design to represent the site rather difficult! 

Congratulations to Chloe Park for the winning design that truly represents so many aspects of the outdoor recreation site.  All 64 submissions are currently hanging in the Young Building on site at the Pat O'Reilly Outdoor Education Site.
