All kindergarten thru Grade 6 students at Captain John Palliser School
have been celebrating Canada 150 this year by focusing on Canadian music. By exploring artists and music from a variety of genres and cultural perspectives, we have gained insight into Canada's history, geography, values and daily life.
As a critical thinking challenge, our Grade 5/6 classes contributed to the creation of the program order and script.
Music Monday is a national celebration, scheduled to take place across Canada on the first Monday in May each year. Our "Music Monday" concert, which was held on Thursday, May 4 (thanks to the Canadian weather this spring), on the hill at Captain John Palliser School, provided inspiration and education about Canada for our audience, as well as helped to promote music education in our schools and community.
