Keep The Beat For Mental Health

Video Posted on

On Feb. 14th 2014 we were joined by the Kelty Dennehy Foundation, and ran a drum circle to bring awareness and conversation around mental health. The goal was to break down the stigma surrounding this disease, and get our community talking about mental health in an open and supportive way. Since Feb14th is a day we show compassion and care for others, it was fitting we connected our drumming on this day.

Remembrance Day @MPCS

Video Posted on

We started our Remembrance Day Ceremony this year with the whole school being piped into the gym behind our talented Mr. Georgy-Embree.  It set the tone for the assembly, and our students listened and reflected as our Grade 7 students spoke and brought meaning to why we honor Canada’s solders on this day.   It was a day filled with hope and respect.  Thank you to all who came to watch, and to all who performed and presented on that day.
