Mission school acquires new instruments thanks to grant, community support

Students at Ecole Christine Morrison performed a Music Monday assembly

Students at Ecole Christine Morrison purchased a new class set of 3/4 size classical guitars this year, with the help of King’s Music in Abbotsford.

The initial project idea came from being recipients of a grant through the Mission Community Foundation.

Along with the grant, a donation from the school’s Parents Advisory Council helped to complete the purchase.

Also, this year, through the Coalition for Music Education, monies were granted to help support a Music Monday performance of the song Hymn to Freedom by Oscar Peterson with lyrics by Harriette Hamilton, along with the opportunity to purchase some new recorders.

Last month, the school held its Music Monday assembly. This school-wide performance opportunity involved a recorder selection of two French songs – Fais Do Do and Rondin Picotin – by Grade 3 French Immersion students, an Orff performance of an Iroquois Lullaby called Ho Ho Watanay, by two English Grade 2/3 classes and the bilingual version of the Grande Finale song Hymn to Freedom, sung by the entire school.

A very musical thank you goes out to all the members of the school and the Mission community for their support this year.
