Columbia School celebrated cultural awareness day on June 1. After opening remarks from teacher Ms. Heshka and Mayor James Wilson, students from kindergarten to grade 8 explored pavilions and enjoyed entertainment in the gymnasium.
Each student had a passport to be stamped before entering each classroom. The classrooms were transformed into different countries where students learned about different cultures through storytelling, dance, food and displays.
The different pavilions included Aboriginal, Ukrainian, Mexican, and Philipino. The gymnasium acted as a showcase for dancing talent. Performances varied from Jamaican dance to Metis jigging.
