As the warm sun shone down over Saugeen Shores on Friday, June 15, students and staff at GC Huston Public School in Southampton headed outside for some fun in the water for their annual Slip and Slide event.

With tarps stretching over 60 metres, Grade 8 students were armed with watering hoses and dish soap, helping to prepare a slippery slope for all grades.

“This is our third annual Slip and Slide,” said GC’s Principal Dan Russell. “It's become a GC Huston tradition,” he said, explaining that it was just a day of fun at the end of the school year.

Throughout the day students took their turn, grade by grade, taking part in the fun and laughter. “Each [student] gets about 45 minutes and that's the right amount of time,” said Russell.

Some of the teachers also joined in on the fun, heading down the hill alongside their students, big smiles on the faces of all.

This will be the last Slip and Slide event for GC Huston Principal Dan Russell as he heads to his new post at Alexandria Community School in Owen Sound this September.
