Order of Toffy
Return to L'AFN
French Version



Every year the Maple Sugar Festival du Sucre d'Érable offers an excellent School Program during the week in which the Festival takes place.

Presentations take on different flavours every year. They can take place in the schools themselves, at which both a workshop and concert, which acknowledge the theme of the Festival, are offered. As well, students can visit the Festival site to partake in sugar shack traditions.

Students will visit the Festival site at Beban Social Centre in Nanaimo on from February 22 to 24. They will delight in tasting the popular toffy on snow, tourtière (French Canadian meat pie) and tarte au sucre (sugar pie) while listening to Suroît from Îles-de-la-Madeleine.



Schools taking part in the festivities at the Festival site are:

  • Hammond Bay Elementary
  • Quarterway Elementary
  • North Oyster Elementary
  • École Océane Elementary
  • Nanaimo District Secondary
  • EJ Dunn Elementary, Port Alberni
  • Wellington Secondary
  • Ladysmith Secondary
  • Aspengrove School

And in 2017, André Thériault et Éloi Amesse visit Willow Point School in Campbell River.
