HRM Tree Lighting special for Bedford South School

This year’s HRM Christmas Tree Lighting event at Grand Parade (in front of City Hall) has special significance for Bedford South School.

All 50 giant Christmas ornaments adorning this year’s tree have been designed and painted by some of their students. Students in grades eight and nine completed this project under the direction of teachers, Ms. Leger and Ms. Bailey.  The tree lighting will be held this Saturday (November 27), 6 – 7 p.m., at Grand Parade.

Children from Bedford South School, the YMCA Immigration Program, and the Youth Advocacy Program painted the giant ornaments being hung on the HRM Christmas Tree this year.

This is a free Christmas event for the family.
