This month, Saskatoon Transit was pleased to collaborate with students at three local schools to celebrate art, Indigenous history and active transportation.
The first project paired students in the Nutana Industry and Career Education program, with Elder Harry Lafond for a Bus Shelter Art Project. Elder Lafond provided traditional teachings of Indigenous history and values which inspired the students to create the art for the new bus shelter located at the corner of 12th Street East and Broadway Avenue.
For the second project, Saskatoon Transit invited Grade 3 and 7 students to submit original art to be displayed on Transit buses throughout the summer as part of the 2nd Annual Student Art Contest. The theme of the contest was a celebration of Active Transportation. This year’s winners are Kinsey from Saskatoon French School and Avery from St. Philip School!
Thank you to everyone who participated and those who worked to make these projects possible! We couldn’t do it without you!
