Our School Song

Our school is not windows, concrete and steel.
It’s the people who are in it and the way that they feel.
It’s children and teachers and parents who,
Each makes a difference the whole year through.
By caring and sharing all those feelings
that together make our school one that is simply “Great”!
We help each other learn and grow.
We give our best each day, and so,
We’re proud of our school and its Red and Blue
JANET JOHNSTONE, We Love You

RT @Indigenous_cbe: Today is fall equinox - a time when daylight & nighttime share the sky equally. Today is also Treaty 7 Day - the 144th anniversary of the signing of Treaty 7. The 🌞 & 🌙s equality today teaches us how to honour the treaty...by walking together in equal partnership. #welcomeoko https://t.co/7nUdmGVAVL
