On April 21, Grade 7 students participated in Runnymede’s first-ever
“Individual Journeys: A Creative Careers Day”. The day-long event exposed
students to 26 professionals from a variety of artistic industries and
creative businesses. Workshop leaders ranged from a runway fashion designer to a Juno-award winning Jazz musician to a video animation creator. Keynote
addresses were made by The Director’s Cut and CJ’s Skate Park.
Students were fascinated to see how many people in their community make a living being creative. Feedback from students and staff was overwhelmingly positive. Runnymede’s guidance program and the Arts Enrichment committee were thrilled about the great response from community volunteers who made this day a huge success.
