Celebrating Through Art

More than 70 schools in Ontario participated in a student art exhibition to commemorate the College’s 20th anniversary. We asked students to create their artwork based on four themes: what they love about school; favourite subject; what they want to learn; and if they were a teacher. Here is a selection of pieces.
