April 21, 2011 - The grade 7 class at St. David Catholic School worked for weeks preparing a performance of the "Stations of the Cross" for the school student population. The students, with their teacher's assistance and direction, played the parts, edited the script, built the set and made the costumes. Stations of the Cross refers to the depiction of the final hours of Jesus and the devotion commemorating the Passion. "I liked the performance because we actually felt like we were there. I liked that the grade 7's used props and costumes and that they told us how we could be better friends to each other and make good choices. They taught us about how Jesus died and why he died for us. I really liked it and can't wait until I am in grade 7 and I can put on this performance for the little kids in the school", said grade 4 student Sequoia Wemigwans. Mrs. Mansourian, grade 7 teacher at St. David School, said that "the integration of the arts into the curriculum is an effective strategy to engage student learners, especially when they (students) feel empowered with the responsibility to teach younger students in the school".
