Bert Bowes Middle School hosted the workshop and performance which celebrates Canadian history.
It focused on key nation building moments; examples are confederation, Louis Riel, Building of the CPR, women’s suffrage and Canadian lives lost in battle.
Lynn Aubin, a grade eight and 9 teacher at Bert Bowes says workshops and presentations like this one, shows students that if they leave FortSt. John, they can practice their French in a different area of Canada.
The O Canada! Tour is sponsored by the Canadian Heritage – Youth Take Charge program, and is being organized by Canadian Parents for French.
