Principal Dan Russell (R) welcomed special guests

On Friday, December 23rd (2016) G. C. Huston hosted a Christmas dinner for 300 people.

According to sources, an anonymous donation was made to "provide a Christmas dinner for the entire student body and staff".

With turkeys from Harrigans' 100 Mile Market in Southampton, volunteers under the direction of Rebecca Cushnie, prepared dinner complete with stuffing, mashed potatoes, gravy and carrots.

While everyone enjoyed the Christmas dinner, the school also takes Christmas very seriously and, this year, supported some 18 families in the community, with the help and donations of various community organizations. 

"We don't ever want anyone in our school community to not have a Christmas," said Principal Russell. "For nine of those families this year, Christmas also included everything for a complete dinner at home."
