St. Anne Students Beat to The Drum of the First Nations


May 11, 2011 - "A culture of respectful relationships." That is what the Gr.5/6 English and French Immersion students at St. Anne school believe in. They showed this during the past week by being part of a Sudbury Catholic School Board presentation with Aboriginal Elder Vince Pawis, Mr. Pawis exposed the students to the rich history, culture and perspectives of First Nation people through his explanations of the Medicine Wheel and other symbols such as the drum. The students listened while developing an increased awareness and appreciation of traditional teachings. They learned about respecting the beauty and history found within the Aboriginal culture. Gr. 5 French Immersion student Valerie Gour was honoured to hold the drum passed around during the presentation. The Sudbury Catholic Board believes in the building of community through the implementation of First Nation, Metis, and Inuit education.
