Sturgeon Creek School in Barwick, Ontario, celebrated its 50th anniversary on Thursday, May 30, 2024, with a fish fry and an assortment of other fun activities. Along with plenty of delicious food to eat, visitors to the celebration were able to test their luck in a silent auction for one of the special and unique painted fish that had been custom decorated by students and area artists. The silent auction collected close to $3,000, according to the school’s Facebook page. A classroom in the school was also set up to provide a glimpse into the past 50 years of school life with a number of photo albums, collages and a special slideshow featuring students, staff and more. While the weather outside was far from perfect, there was still outdoor fun to be had with basketball, disc-golf and Métis jigging.
