Christmas Traditions Over the Last 150 Years


Rosary School, a member of Holy Family Catholic School District #37, is located in Manning, Alberta. Rosary is a K-9 school with a school registration of 162 students.  Manning is a community of about 1400 residents with a surrounding MD population of about 4000. Manning is located 600 km north of Edmonton, on the Mackenzie Highway.

Our students, teachers, and staff are very excited to work with Trickster Theatre in the 2017-18 school year to put on our show on Christmas Traditions Over the Last 150 Years.

We greatly appreciate your help and look forward to sharing our finished work with you!

  • Full Project Summary

    Rosary School chose the theme “Christmas Traditions over the last 150 years!” The idea is to have the students create their own stories from a historical, present and future context, demonstrating how traditions in Canada have changed and developed over the past 150 years. The students will look at Christmas in various years from the past (for example 1867, 1900, 1920, 1940, 1960, etc) all the way to present.  With the artists help, we will use a variety of points of inspiration that stem from our community.

  • Project Outcome

    * To foster interest and pride in the student’s local community and geography. To engage the community in a more personalized way by looking into family and community Christmas traditions. * To students to have a better understanding of the way people lived over the past 150 years by exploring traditions. * To gain a better understanding of early interactions between First Nations peoples and early settlers. * To engage our local community by gathering stories from community organizations. * To have students and teachers experience a new way to write stories. * To unify the entire school community by creating an original show together and getting everyone excited for another great year at Rosary School. * To give our students the opportunity to use their imagination and creativity to learn through performance.


  • How to create projects

    Only a school site admin can set up new projects. Ask you teacher to get help in setting up a project page. Once set up you can write blog articles to support your project. 

    New Projects can be of many types: an event, a take action project, a study, or a Trickster Residency.

  • What is Trickster Theatre
