This event is a co-partnership event between the Gibbons Skating Club and the Edmonton Catholic Schools. The Edmonton Catholic Schools are inviting new immigrant families in experience one of Canada’s favourite past-times – skating. They are bussing in the students and their families and they will have access to the Canada 150/Rogers Skate Bank. For the majority of the students and their families it will be the first time they get to put on skates and find out how much fun it can be.


This project has been made possible in part by the Government of Canada.
