Having lived through two World Wars and the Great Depression, Georges Vanier is perhaps one of Canada’s most decorated soldiers. The first French Canadian Roman Catholic to hold the appointment of Governor-General of Canada, he was also a fearless leader. His legend lives on throughout Canada as both a respected diplomat and humanitarian, having dedicated much of his life to helping destitute refugees following the war.

As such an iconic figure in Canadian history, it is no surprise that his name now appears in history books, on buildings, and on plaques across the country. Additionally, his name is honoured by a number of schools including the home of one of our latest projects at Georges Vanier Catholic School in Belleville, Ontario.

In a world that is becoming increasingly competitive, the beneficial aspects of collaboration can go unrecognized. The term “group project” can evoke a sense of dread, whether one has experienced a team assignment from the perspective of a slacker or team leader.

Recently, the partnership between Sport Systems and RMG Contract Interiors Inc. (RMG) provided an extremely successful outcome for three Ontario schools.

The midwestern region of the United States is often associated with open land, hearty meals, unique accents, and friendly, hard-working people. When it comes to education, however, the school systems in these states have historically been regarded as mediocre. Disproving this assumption, however, are the schools found in Valley, Nebraska.

Today, society is becoming increasingly aware of the need to preserve resources. From
composting and recycling to refurbished furniture and repurposed fashion, conservation serves two purposes: this intentional act not only mitigates the depletion of resources, but also increases the value of that which already exists. Translating this concept from material objects to societal institutions, one may note the many benefits of merging neighbouring schools. The merging of Madoc Public School and Centre Hastings Secondary School in particular, has proven to be an excellent example of combining resources in order to preserve them.

It is commonly believed that if everyone viewed the world through the eyes of children, society would be a much better place. Despite being at more preliminary stages of development, children see no value-based distinction amongst varying ethnicities, genders, or socioeconomic backgrounds. Implementing this child-like acceptance and celebrating the differences of each individual, the Boys and Girls Club of Ottawa (BGC) has created a safe space for children and teens aged 6-18.

While books will always be an important educational resource, museums present an opportunity to reflect on history and nature in an interactive way. One might conclude that the true value of information is often unrecognized until it is put into practice. As a hands-on company, Sport Systems strives to take information and turn it into tangible products that serve a purpose.
