Upcoming workshops for our Primary Grades 1-3 students (March 6th)

In support of Black history, our Grades 1 through 3 students will be having the wonderful opportunity to participate in a one-hour workshop entitled “Gumboots”.  It started in South Africa’s diamond mines during racial segregation. Workers were given gumboots to wear, but were not allowed to talk. The workers then invented a non-verbal method of communication with stomps, slaps and claps. Gumboots Workshops introduces students to a percussive dance where the body becomes a musical instrument practiced with rubber boots. Students will learn basic steps and choreography, and have the opportunity to create a movement routine.

 

Courcelette students sing at a Canadian Citizenship Ceremony

We wish to thank Ms. Dhanani for her time at Courcelette, and we wish her the very best in the future. She returned last week to honour a field-trip she had organized for our Grade 6 students. Please read below, in Ms. Dhanani’s words:

“The Grade 6 Students had an incredible experience at the Ismaili Centre for Toronto and at the Aga Khan Museum yesterday. They were treated like VIP’s and they participated in the Canadian Citizenship Ceremony by singing the National Anthem, meeting with representatives from Canadian Citizenship and Immigration Office, meeting with Immigrant and Refugee Families that became Canadian Citizens, and they were given endless amounts of Canada’s cake in the VIP room.

Lastly, they were granted free tours of both the Ismaili Centre and the Aga Khan Museum where they learned about the relationships of architecture to symmetry and geometric shapes and its meaning, Islamic Culture and History in the past 1400 years, its strong relations with Judaism and Christianity, trade that was made along the Silk Routes from many centuries ago, they visited the massive and serene prayer hall inside the triangular glass dome of the Ismaili Centre and they learned about some of the world’s most diverse cultures.”

 

 

February’s sharing Assembly
Last week, Ms. Baldwin, Mr. Hoang and Mr. Moore  hosted a great assembly. Many thanks to them and to their wonderful students.
Please see the video montage they shared with the entire school and with our many guests.
