St Lawrence Win the June Wear Yellow Day Contest

Schools across Hamilton ended the academic year in style (yellow style to be specific) by walking to school on Wednesday June 20th in celebration of the third Walk to School and Wear Yellow Day of 2012.  Once again several schools registered to compete for bragging rights and money for sports equipment.

Out of many great entries, the judges unanimously selected St Lawrence Catholic Elementary School as the winner based on their awesome group photo seen below.


We greatly appreciate the efforts of all of the participating schools, coming so late in the school year during very busy times.  Other cool entries included a massive smiley face, a playground sized sun, and many more.

As we close the 2011/2012 season of Wear Yellow Day, it is only appropriate to recognize all of this year’s winners and thank them once again for participating and making Wear Yellow Day such a success.

  • October 2011 – Winner, Holy Name of Jesus Catholic Elementary School
  • February 2012 – Winner, Immaculate Conception Catholic Elementary School;
    Special Prizes, St Marguerite D’Youville and Holy Name of Jesus Catholic Elementary Schools
  • June 2012 – Winner, St Lawrence Catholic Elementary School

Thanks again to every school that participated this year.  Enjoy your summer break and make sure you do some walking!
