There was plenty to celebrate during a recent Spirit assembly at Southampton’s GC Huston Public School as the Home of the Hawks unveiled their latest Bimaadiziwin door, “Anishnaabemowin Ojibwe,” created by the school’s Bimaadiziwin artists, May 25.

The Huston Hawks also welcomed a few guests to the assembly, Saugeen First Nation Chief Lester Anoquot, and Natasha Lubimiv and Madison Gregory of the Mino-Bimadsawin Health Centre, who presented the school with $6,000, proceeds from the August 2017 “Light Up Your Nation” Colour Run. To the students who had donned school colours blue and gold for the occasion, GC Huston Principal Dan Russell announced that the 2018 5k run will be held on Saturday, September 22.

The next guest to enter the gymnasium was Rotarian Peter Day of the Southampton Rotary Club, accompanied by a surprise guest, the newly named Bearama, the Rotary Winterama mascot. Day and Bearama presented GC Huston with $4,000 from their Winterama pledges and an extra $500 for having the most student involvement in Winterama 2018.

Students who participated in the Science and Heritage Fair were then honoured as well as members of the flag-football team; and Pow Wow dancers who will be performing in new regalia for the school’s June 8 Pow Wow. A GC Huston parent created new jingle dresses and six new fancy shawls in the school colours for 20 GC Huston dancers.

The Archery team, who “cleaned up” in recent competition, were awarded with trophies. Members included Maddy Sheehan, Finlay Hendry, Serena McKenzie, and Corbin Glover. Huston Hawk Jack Bennett was awarded the Saugeen Valley Conservation Authority Award for his Science Fair project with Principal Dan Russell admitting that they would have to build a new display case for all the new, tall trophies.
