The Centre for Social Justice and Good Works (The ‘Centre’) is happy to announce a change to the fall session of our free recreation program I Love To Move. The program was scheduled to run Wednesday evenings at two locations – Queen Elizabeth Public School (139 Elizabeth Street) and Holy Family Catholic School (42 Rushmere Drive).
However, there was a need in the community to have children’s recreational activities during the weekend as well as on different times. The ‘Centre’ has decided to keep Queen Elizabeth School running Wednesday evenings from 6:00 pm to 7:30 pm as planned and will move Holy Family School to Saturday mornings from 10:00 am to 11:30 am.
This program is in partnership with Canadian Tire’s Jumpstart program and started it’s fall session on 10 October 2018. This fall, the schedule for ‘I Love To Move’ is as given below:
|Queen Elizabeth School||Holy Family Catholic School|
|October 17th, 2018||October 20th, 2018|
|October 24th, 2018||October 27th, 2018|
|November 7th, 2018||November 3rd, 2018|
|November 14th, 2018||November 17th, 2018|
|November 21st, 2018||November 24th, 2018|

|December 5th, 2018||December 8th, 2018|

We would like to invite all 6-13 years old who want to get active, have fun and make some new friends to join us at both the locations. The change in schedule gives us the perfect opportunity to provide more recreation hours to each child weekly. This free program consists of recreational activities, sports, arts and craft and a nutritional snack break.
We are also actively recruiting volunteers to assist as recreation and activity leaders, and at the registration desk, food and beverage. This is a great learning experience and opportunity for anyone looking to get involved in the community and for students to fill their voluntary hours. Be a part of the team that gives back to the community! Volunteers are needed at both locations as per their respective schedules.
