Sing Ontario Sing!



Welcome to Sing Ontario Sing for the 2017-2018 year! And Happy Canada 150!
We’re going again with the sesquicentennial theme for this one. Thankfully, the work I did to fill in the blog where I was lacking for the last crest will help on this one! And I’ll be working to try and update the rest I don’t know as usual.

CLICK HERE to be taken to the requirements for this years crest on the official Guides Ontario website. I’ve listed the song list below as it is divided on the website, and linked to the songs available here on My Virtual Songbook.

A part of this crest is also to name some fun Canadian facts, and so I also made a post with a bunch of fun facts. You can find it here.

What is Sing Ontario Sing!?

For those of you unfamiliar, Sing Ontario Sing is an annual challenge put out to Guides to learn and sing certain Guiding songs to meet that year’s theme and requirements. Each year, the challenge is decided and put together by an Ontario unit, who decides the songs to choose from, the theme, and the requirements that must be met by each branch of Guiding to earn the crest. Sometimes even the crest is designed by the unit!

This annual challenge is much loved by units all over Ontario and challenges girls to learn new songs other than the favourites they like to sing in their units all the time.
