Barn Quilt for IPM at CHSS

To celebrate Canada’s 150th and the 2017 International Plowing Match and Rural Expo, Central Huron Secondary School Staff and Students created a barn quilt and mounted it above the South East Entrance of the school on the 1026 wing, where it can be seen form Princess St.

The quilt was designed by staff member Tenille Doucet, and features a traditional school house. A red maple leaf in the top left corner symbolizes Canada’s 150th and the lamp of learning in the top right corner comes from the school’s crest. Students in the construction class sanded and primed the quilt board and the painting was completed by Doucet and Lynne Godkin, along with students in the art program and Principal George McEwan. Construction students built a wooden frame to mount the quilt and custodial staff along with Smith Construction mounted the Quilt on the school building. During the creating of the quilt, it moved around the building. The painting was completed in the art room, it was sealed in the auto shop and framed in the construction shop. Many thanks to all staff and students who helped and who gathered outside the school for a photo on the final day of exams.
