This morning, Simcoe County educator and First Nations elder Roseanne Irving visited Rama Central and conducted a circle with students in the Junior Division. She conducted a smudging ceremony, provided an opportunity for sharing and taught us about some First Nations medicines.

Here are some images from this morning's circle:

We want to thank Mr. Fitzgerald for arranging this visit, and Ms. Irving for coming to the school to help us celebrate Aboriginal Day!

Yesterday, students in our class attended a 90 minute french-language cooking class, organized by their french teacher Mme. (Sarah) Black.  The program provided students with a hands-on opportunity to prepare and taste kid-friendly french pastries, hear an exciting storyboard presentation on French Canadian culture and listen to authentic Acadian music.

Here are some images from our cooking class:

We want to thank Mme. Black for organizing this fun opportunity, and Chef Suzanne (http://www.chefsuzanne.ca) for driving up from Port Perry to teach us!
