Dewdney Elementary school held its last band concert for the foreseeable future, after 46 years of having a music program.

Ron Schaufert taught band at the school for 36 years, and then volunteered for five more years after his retirement.

Two parent volunteers have kept the program alive for the past four years, but with their children moving on to secondary school, there are no future plans for band at Dewdney.

It has been a popular program, with 29 of the 73 students in grades 5-7 taking part.

Principal Jim Toth said a final performance was held recently, to celebrate the 46 years of music.
