It has been a wonderful year teaching Music and Dance at the Superior North Catholic District School Board. (St. Martin, Holy Angels and St. Hilary).

The students enjoyed these programs immensely. We ventured through the Music and Dance Curricula with a brave spirit. The students learned about humanities, culture, mathematics and the language arts with a disciplined athletic performance, academic agenda and perspective.

We also were the proud hosts of a Fundraiser for the Heart and Stroke Foundation. A wonderful evening soirée concert put on by the St. Hilary Vocal Ensemble. The evening was magical, filled with community fans and strong support in our wonderful community at St. Hilary’s school in Red Rock.

Here are some of the featured highlights through pictures and student reflections.

Well done my Amazing Students! Bravo! Encore! Ms. Wilson

The St. Hilary grade 7/8s enjoyed learning how to make moccasins with Mrs. Roxborough and Mrs. Borg.

Outdoor Learning

Students and staff from kindergarten to grade 6 at Holy Angels School in Schreiber enjoyed an amazing learning opportunity at Pukaskwa National Park.

Learning experiences in the outdoors are a valuable tool to encourage students to engage in active and healthy activities. Throughout the school year, our students actively participated in experiential learning opportunities which provided students with the ability to connect to a community outside of school.

During their visit to Pukaskwa National Park students engaged in conversations and explored the rich cultural, spiritual and historical heritage of the Anishinaabek people.

The students participated in a variety of educational outdoor activities and games in an outdoor learning environment that included a beautiful view of Lake Superior.

For the last seven weeks, Raquel Kashkeesh from the Thunderbird Friendship Centre in Geraldton, and the girls at St. Joseph Catholic School have worked together to make their own ribbon skirts. Raquel asked Helen, an elder in our community and great grandmother to three of our students, to help them with this project

Once all the ribbons skirts were done, they had a special ceremony to bless them and feast with them. Raquel placed tobacco on each skirt. She smudged the skirts and said a prayer over them. They had bread and berries and and thanked the Creator for the opportunity to be together and make their skirts.

On June 15th, St. Joseph Catholic School had a Social at school and the drummers sang a song for their skirts while they all held hands and danced around them. It was a special time as they were surrounded by all of their families, ladies from the CWL and guests from the Thunderbird Friendship Center.

Together We Educate Heart, Mind and Soul."
