We were thrilled that Mr. Don Bowser, our First Nations Education Worker, was able to book a session with Darryl Laboucan. Mr. Laboucan brought drums and drum sticks and we all got to use them while we sang a number of First Nations songs. We had heard the Welcome Song at the opening to our River's Day but the others were new to us. The children had awesome listening ears and resisted the urge to beat the drum when they were not supposed to. They were also very good at sharing the drums with each other. We are looking forward to other cultural presentations this year. Thank you Mr. Bowser and Mr. Laboucan!
I have taught many grades, including high school, but LOVE teaching primary.
