Celebrating an Easter Tradition


April 5, 2012 - Ms. Martine Laforest's grade 7 class at St. Paul the Apostle School learned about the sacred Ukrainian tradition of pysanky during this Holy Week. Mrs. Jan Buley from Laurentian University shared her knowledge and talent with these students as was shared to her by her university friend Mary. The students learned about the various symbols traditionally painted on these eggs using beeswax and the writing tool called a kitska and the symbolism of the various colours used. Pictured is Keegan Kennedy working on his creation.
