French Band “Le mazout”
French Band is a collaboration between already accomplished musicians who are in the French Immersion program and one of our French immersion teachers. The students learn to play and sing popular French songs that are often heard on Quebec radio stations. The teacher creates material based on these songs, finds schools throughout Alberta who are willing to invite the band and shares his teaching materials as they hit the road to play their music. The band practices for most of the school year on Wednesdays and Thursdays. Teacher contact: M. Lacroix.
Horseback Riding Trip – June
Each June, students have an opportunity to go on a horseback riding trip to the mountains with Mr. Halun.
