Grades 2-6 participate in drumming and round dance activity

Students in grades 2-6 participated in a drumming and round dance activity on March 22nd. The students in attendance regularly attend the school's drumming literacy clubs. The school invited community member Freddy Gladue to come and talk to students about various drums he brought with him and how they were made. He also talked about the honour song and shared some life lessons about staying clean. Everyone in attendance practiced some drumming skills and participated in a round dance as Freddy sang and played the pow wow drum. Photos and videos are also available on the school's Facebook page
