4th Annual Day of Sucwentwecw

4th Annual Day of Sucwentwecw

The theme was well depicted in a collaborative assembly at Savona Elementary. Principal Frank Law explained the theme through his own personal experiences growing up.  Special guests from Skeetchestn Indian Band were on hand as well. Councillor Terry Deneault provided an informative presentation and drummers from the Skeetchestn Band School were warmly received.

South Sa-Hali Elementary had two class performances in honour of the day.  Mme Muraca's grade two students at South Sa-Hali used music and drama to tell the story of "How the Bear Lost its Tail" at their recent Day of Sucwentwecw Assembly. They performed along with Mme Kirby's grade 4 class that shared some moving tableaux for the song "The Earth is our Mother." 


Westsyde Secondary held an honouring ceremony on the Day of Sucwentwecw which featured Whispering Pines Indian Band guest Sunny Lebourdais (being presented with her thank you gift), student Madison Glanzer, sang the Metis Anthem, and an impressive presentation by Sage Hills Drummers, and Sage Hills Dancers took place.


Three young girls demonstrated the different women's powwow dance (jingle, fancy and traditional) at Bert Edwards Elementary School during the Day of Sucwentwecw Assembly.
