By Grade 4 Students at St. Michael’s Junior School

Students in Ms. Newsome and Ms. Sandquist’s classes became ocean stewards to help save our oceans! Each student created an art piece with found and repurposed materials. A QR code was included on the poster for the public to hear our podcasts and learn more about ocean threats and what the solutions are. These amazing projects were on display at Hillside Shopping Centre during Ocean’s Week Victoria 2022.


By Makena & Mya (Grade 5 & Kindergarten)

The Assignment: Each family in the school were encouraged to decorate a sweater made out of Bristol board in a festive way, for December.

Makena came up with a plan to paint their school’s Seaquarium on the sweater and make it look like the sea creatures decorated for Christmas. She drew a plan and Mya contributed ideas.

Mya, in Kindergarten, painted the black top and bottom of the tank and the gravel, water, large rock, surf grass, barnacles, and the sea cucumber.

Makena, in Grade 5, painted the rest, using acrylic paint and Posca Markers (acrylic paint markers).

Their school displayed all of the decorated sweaters in the hallway with the sisters’ sweater placed right next to the Seaquarium.

Comment from the teacher: “Thank you for this wonderful Seaquaria program! My class and my own two children have learned so much about the Salish Sea since our school got the Seaquaria Program, and, most importantly, they have learned to care about our local environment around Victoria and become environmental stewards.”

Students at White Rock Elementary made tote bags, “plank you” cards, and prints to raise awareness about ocean health and to fundraise for local organizations!

Barnacles have taken over the school! Check out these awesome “Rules for Being a Barnacle” posters.

Here is how you can be a barnacle:

  1. don’t land on a turtle or a whale
  2. don’t get eaten when an egg
  3. find a place to land
  4. make a limestone shell
  5. molt when growing

Sounds easy enough!

Students in Ms. Wardle’s class got creative with some water colour and moon jellyfish! We hope the swarm of jellies will give you some colourful inspiration.
