Crescent’s annual Community Day brought families, alumni, teachers and staff together for a fun afternoon on October 4, 2019.
“Community Day is a way to celebrate the strong bond we feel as a Crescent family,” says Headmaster Michael Fellin. “It was evident from the smiles and good spirits that Community Day was a success. We’re particularly grateful to all the parents who volunteered to make that possible.”
The activities featured a robotics demonstration led by Team 610, the Prefects’ dunk tank challenge and carnival attractions that included a giant inflatable slide, a bouncy castle and a game of “human bowling” in the Formal Garden.
At the family BBQ, Headmaster Michael Fellin and his helpers grilled over 800 hot dogs and burgers to feed the crowd. And anyone who was still hungry could satisfy their appetite at the popcorn booth, Prefects’ bake sale, ice-cream truck and CPA hot chocolate booth.
Crescent’s athletes also enjoyed a good showing at Community Day. Crescent hosted nine soccer matches and four volleyball games with many successful outcomes. They included the Senior D1 Soccer team’s 5-0 Friday Night Lights victory versus St. Michael’s College School that capped the Community Day events. “It was great to see so many boys in action representing their school,” says Athletics Director Fraser Bertram. “They showed great sportsmanship and teamwork, giving it their all.”
