Self Conduct Winter Gathering

Success! What a show we had last week! All 300 Jean Lumb students got up on the Nelson Mandela stage and performed to a huge crowd. The younger grade conducted us in a sing-along, the grade 2/3s showed off their ukulele skills as we taught the audience the chorus of our newly composed school song, and the grade 4-8 performed with Mr Nunez (and other wonderful JL staff members) on the Cuban/Brazilian drums! There was gorgeous art on the walls, students speaking about how they’ve learned to conduct themselves (get it?!?), and treats offered by our School Council. Thank you to everyone!!

Scars to your Beautiful-CBC Music Class competition video submission.

I am so proud of my grade 7/8s. They chose “Scars to Your Beautiful” from the CBC Music Class competition list and we arranged it for voice, ukuleles, keyboard, and Cuban/Brazilian drums (thank you TDSB Arts Department!). We rehearsed until we became quite tired of the piece but the day of our video recording it was the students who said, “let’s do another take Ms Fraser, we can do better.”
