The Manuels River Hibernia Interpretation Center would like to invite Queen Elizabeth students to participate in our monthly event called Turrsday @ The River. This day is a celebration of Newfoundland culture and happens the first Thursday of every month.
The day starts with a touton breakfast special at Coffee Matters Express at 8am. At 11am an art exhibition begins. Each month has a different genre or artistry. We have had painters and quilters so far. This exhibition is accompanied by live music in the lobby or in the reception hall.
Over the summer we would like to encourage student aged children to get involved in Turrsday by coming to the center prepared to play or sing a song or two from 11am to 4pm. If the parents could let us know when the kids were coming it would be a great help, but it is not mandatory.
We would also like to have a Kid’s Turrsday on October 2nd. We invite all music, art, stories, storytellers, and other great Newfoundland inspired ideas to participate in this very special Turrsday.
There will be no classes for students on Friday, May 30th as teachers have a professional development day. Monday, June 2nd will be a Day 4 on your schedules when students return to school.
