NESBITT SCHOOL TO LAUNCH CENTENNIAL CELEBRATIONS

Repercussion Theatre

MONTREAL, SEPTEMBER 14, 2010 With the academic portion of the 2010 – 2011 year in full swing, this Wednesday, September 15  at 12:30 p.m. Nesbitt  Elementary School (6108 8th Avenue) in Rosemount will officially launch their Centennial with the first of many events marking 100 years as a Montreal educational landmark.

Nesbitt will begin to mark this milestone with a morning corn roast ,which precedes an afternoon of celebrations. Beginning at 12:30 p,m. current students will form the number 100 on the soccer field, which will serve as the official Centennial picture. Cycle 1 students will represent the “1”, while both “0’s” will be formed by Cycle 2 and 3 students respectively.

Following the picture, students will sing and 100 balloons will be released into the sky.
A myriad of other activities are also planned throughout the year, which will fuse both current students and Nesbitt alumni. Events are set to include two galas, one which will invite friends and family to view the artistic talents of Nesbitt students through multiple plays and concerts and a second will reunite alumni for a soiree celebrating the school’s Centennial.

In honour of the milestone, a website which was designed specifically for Nesbitt, will soon be released, taking browsers on an online journey through the history books back to 1911.
