The Holiday Hootenanny is an annual tradition at Greenwood where the community competes in fun activities in the week leading up to winter break. A few activities awarded House points, and these count towards the final tally to determine the winning House at the end of the year. Here are the results from this year’s Holiday Hootenanny:
Monday House Event
Houses split into their House Buddy groups and completed activities at stations around the school. The number of completed activities counted towards the final rankings.
Tied for 2nd: Onyx and Lynx
Students decorated gingerbread cookies with points awarded for best decorated.
Tied for 3rd: Timberwolves and Trillium
Gingerbread House Competition
Students decorated gingerbread houses with points awarded for decoration and creativity.
Find Hibernating Grizz
Pictures of the sleeping Grizz were hidden in Greenwood. The Houses were challenged to find and locate the photos. The more pictures found, the more points earned.
Throughout the week, there were multiple athletic events held where Houses competed to see who would come out on top!
Tied for 3rd: Onyx and Timberwolves

We acknowledge with gratitude the Ancestral lands upon which our main campus is situated. These lands are the Ancestral territories of the Haudenosaunee Confederacy, Mississaugas of the Credit First Nation, Anishinabek and the Wendake. The shared responsibility of this land is honoured in the Dish with One Spoon Treaty and as settlers, we strive to care for the land, the waters, and all creatures in the spirit of peace. We are responsible for respecting and supporting the enduring presence of all First Nations, Métis and Inuit peoples. When away from this campus we vow to be respectful to the land by protecting and honouring it. We will create relationships with the people and the land we may visit by understanding the territories we enter and the nations who inhabit them.
