As part of local celebrations to mark Canada's 150th anniversary since confederation, students throughout the Hamilton-Wentworth Catholic District School Board have been busy learning about the country's rich history, unique landscape, and annual traditions.
Their thoughts and reflections "through the eyes of youth" will be featured in a special digital edition produced by Hamilton Community News in June.
In other activities, MP Filomena Tassi visited Immaculate Conception Catholic Elementary School earlier this month to help celebrate the work students have been doing around Canada's sesquicentennial anniversary.
Minister of Education Mitzie Hunter also invited schools to celebrate Canada's milestone anniversary in conjunction with Catholic Education Week which took place from May 1 to 5.
"Ontario’s 150th anniversary is an exciting time to reflect on the qualities and values that have defined us since Confederation," she said. "Education Week is the perfect opportunity to celebrate that together in Ontario’s schools."
She asked students to recreate a song, titled "A Place to Stand," which she shared across the province. Stepping up to the challenge was Annunciation of Our Lord which sang its rendition with maracas and tambourines.
Great job to all the students who helped put a mark in Canada and Ontario's 150th milestone.
