Trees love to toss and sway; they make such happy noises

…. Emily Carr

The K-5 students were treated to a presentation on Emily Carr recently. Emily Carr is a famous Canadian artist and a unique person and artist, who struggled a bit in school because of it. The play touched on this, through acting, music and singing. The backdrops included her art as well as a depiction of her homestead.

These are pictures created by Mrs. Sherlock’s Grade 1 class (finger-paints) and Mrs. Langlois’ class (colored sketches). Following the event, the students wrote reflections in their journals.
