We invite the community to join us on Saturday, May 26 from 11 am to 3 pm for our May Court Festival!
The May Court Festival has been celebrated since 1907, bringing our school community and neighbours together to celebrate the crowning of the May Queen and her Court. The May Queen and her Counsellors are elected as the students who best exemplify our school motto, Veritas, Virtus, Venustas – Truth, Virtue, Loveliness.
From the more formal proceedings of the May Court to the fun festival that follows, each student is involved in making this day special. Guests are immersed in the wonderful diversity of our community with a display of cultural music and dance, horse-drawn wagon rides, various food and treats, a strawberry social tent, dunk tank, rock-climbing wall, and more!
This year we are excited to welcome several community pop-up shops:
- Durham KidsKare – Pediatric Urgent Care Centre
- Freckle Face Creations Jewellery
- Happiness Is Inc. – Clothing
- Origami Owl – Jewellery (charms, lockets)
- Petite Wreath Shoppe – Handmade Door Wreaths
- Tocara Jewelry
It is a day of celebration to welcome spring and to rejoice in the warmth of our community. We hope to see you there!
