Character moment: Performance by the Queen Victoria School Choir
Superintendent Mark Fisher welcomed the students and staff from Queen Victoria School, and introduced Principal Chad Harvey. Mr. Harvey explained that the Junior Choir consists of students who enjoy leading by example and who engage with others in the Primary division through singing. He also described the connections to the school board AiM System Plan, particularly the priorities of Reaching High Levels of Student Achievement and Promoting Well-Being for Students and Employees. Through their involvement in the choir, students are learning to connect learning goals to character development and well-being. Grade 6 student Ha-nee Hood expressed appreciation for the choir being able to perform three songs: “Responsibility,” “Winter Song,” and “True Colours.”
