Hi! This is Diesel and Joseph with the HPE news report.
HPE was given a wonderful presentation March 31 by the High Prairie Ukrainian Dancers.
In Grade 2/3CL, students love learning about Canada and comparing its many cultures and traditions to places around the world. Right now, students are learning about the Ukraine and Ukrainian Canadians. Students were so excited to watch the High Prairie Ukrainian dancers present their wonderful dancing skills. It was fun to watch our HPE friends dance, especially Wynter Chalifoux and Rebekah Strebchuk, from our class. Students are going to decorate Ukrainian Easter eggs, too.
In Grade 3J, students would like to thank the High Prairie and District Museum and Stella Sware for teaching us about the Ukrainian tradition of pysanka. What an amazing experience!
