Back to School Rocks at Erin Mills


Back to School is big, scary, fun time for students of all ages, but it’s marketed mostly to parents, teens and college students. How about something for the kids?

Erin Mills Town Centre is making back-to-school fun for the younger set next week with its School of Rock. Kids aged 4-12 will find that back-to-school rocks with a lot of great activities.

The “Main Stage” event is Rock 101, a 45-minute session that teaches the most important fundamentals of rock: creating rock star “must haves” like personalized guitars, crazy band names, posters and buttons. They will also learn how to rock back-to-school fall fashions, with lucky participants chosen to take part in the School of Rock fashion show.

Also, the event will remind kids (and this probably won’t surprise them) that Chocolate Rocks! The Chocolate Rocks event will give kids the chance to make a chocolate pizza. Mommy & Me Yoga will be extra cool with health tips for back to school and yoga poses that can be done anywhere. And kids can learn how to throw a real rock ‘n roll Arty Party with Visual Arts Mississauga.

Families can commemorate the event with the School of Rock Photo Booth. Families can pick rock star inspired costume pieces from a tickle truck, have their hair spruced up, create cool glasses, and have their photo taken – all with the help of several of the mall’s retailers.

And finally, one of the coolest events: Rock Band Show and Tell. The Ontario Conservatory of Music will be demonstrating how to rock with cool instruments such as the bass, guitar and keyboards. Kids will get the hands-on experience to be a real rock star, which will make a great entry in “What I did on my summer vacation.”
