SCDSB Presents “Blues In The Schools"

May 21, 2004 - The Sudbury Catholic District School Board in conjunction with the Ottawa Bluesfest organization will be presenting "Blues in the Schools", May 25 to 28 at a number of locations. The "Blues in the Schools" program offers a unique and inspirational opportunity for students of all ages to draw on the energy and experience of award-winning blues artists through workshops and hands on instructional techniques. The "Blues in the Schools" program also teaches blues history, and through this history students learn about the injustice of racial intolerance. One of the goals of the program is to promote the use of blues music in other areas of education including art, history and creative writing.

Musician T. J. Wheeler will be performing in some of the SCDSB schools next week. He believes that you can wipe out racism and bullying through education and activism. He sees blues as a music of hope and as a means of developing positive social change.
Please note that one of the classes at Corpus Christ Catholic school will have the opportunity to be a core class. They will develop a performance that will be showcased in their school at the end of the week.

The following is the itinerary for the schools participating in Blues in the School, May 25 to 28, 2004:
