Classic Canadian Traditions at HSC’s Winterfest

On December 9, 2017, HSC students, parents, alumni and staff celebrate the beginning of the winter season together. Between road hockey, holiday crafts, photos with Santa, gingerbread houses, curling lessons, décor workshops, comfort food and hot chocolate, there was something exciting for every member of the family. With a theme that celebrated Canada’s 150th anniversary, this year’s rendition of Winterfest was a great way to learn about Canadian culture!

A Theatrical Success for HSC’s Senior School – The Drowsy Chaperone 

Creative choreography, delightful singing and a hilarious plot of characters had everyone in their seats thoroughly entertained. HSC’s Senior School students, directed by Senior School staff, performed The Drowsy Chaperone three successful evenings in a row. Learn more about the arts at HSC by clicking here.

HSC’s Junior and Montessori Schools Spread Holiday Cheer

HSC’s two Early Education schools have worked diligently through the month of December to prepare holiday concerts for the community. Students aged 18-months to 9-years-old dressed in full festive costume to sing and dance the audience into a festive mood. Their performances are one of the College’s favourite ways to spread cheer and start the holiday season.  Learn more about the Junior School and Montessori School.  

Holiday Gift Drive

The season of giving is one of the most cherished at Hillfield Strathallan College. Students in all four of our schools have been committed to collecting brand-new toys, socks, pajamas, art supplies, hygiene products, and more for families in the Hamilton community. The photo above shows students delivering one round of gifts to the St. Matthew’s House.
