Brampton - Roberta Bondar Public School will hold its Stream of Dreams unveiling ceremony on Sept. 10 to uncover a mural of fish on the schoolyard’s fence. Roberta Bondar students are participating in the Stream of Dreams program, an initiative created by Credit Valley Conservation (CVC) to educate and empower students to help protect the health of their local watershed—the mural represents their commitment to achieve this goal.
“We are extremely excited to showcase the mural as part of our on-going dedication and commitment to the environment,” says Joan Hamilton, principal at Roberta Bondar. “Students benefit greatly from the Stream of Dreams program and the initiative brings our community together to focus on important green issues in our area.”
Students, staff, parents, community volunteer members and the CVC team work together to prepare the mural. Students from grade 6, 7 and 8 paint wooden fish and take a pledge with their family to actively make lifestyle choices that would help preserve their watershed.
“Part of building a resilient community is to maintain the wellbeing of our environment,” says Hamilton. “We have tied the Stream of Dreams project into our curriculum through science, art and community involvement—this will provide the foundation for ongoing learning and action to protect and conserve our local water resources.”
The event will take place in the school’s gymnasium and outside on the playground from 12:40 to 2:30 p.m. Roberta Bondar Public School is located at 30 Pantomine Blvd. in Brampton.
