Will Morin, local artist and story teller had the students of St. Joseph and St. David up on their feet as they took part in his interactive Aboriginal storytelling.

December 17, 2009 - Students from St. Joseph and St. David's Catholic Elementary Schools joined together for the day at St. David's schools to build links between the two communities. The students' teachers, Irene Dembek from St. Joseph and Christina Kilby from St. David's brought their classes together as part of their multi-school project to build knowledge and understanding of the history and traditions found in Aboriginal culture. It is their hope that their project would begin building supportive relationships for Aboriginal students and illicit parent involvement in order to assist students in their embracing of their cultural background. Will Morin, a local artist and story teller was invited in to the school to share his stories and his expertise in Aboriginal culture with both the Aboriginal students as well as the general student population.
