Care Hare

Care Hare holds in his paw everything that Galbraith stands for and represents:

  • He is flexible by adapting to this ever-changing environment through camouflage.  Changing colours represents aspects of multi-culturalism, sensitive to individual differences.
  • Note Care Hare's ears.  He has an outstanding ear for details and is a good listener.  He is a strong role model through sensitivity in problem-solving on the playground and in the classroom.
  • Care Hare is a survivor and a creative problem-solver.  He literally stands up on his hind legs for what he believes.
  • Care Hare models the Green Zone, which means he has strategies to regulate himself.
  • Care Hare has a history at Galbraith with dreams and aspirations to continue his promise to represent the School Mission and Motto.
  • Care Hare represents the caring nature in all of us.
