The students, staff and parents of the Collaborative Education Alternative Program (CEAP) elementary age group came together with a number of community members to mount an ambitious theatre production entitled ‘Our Spirit of Canada’ hosted in the Whalebone Theatre at Ballenas Secondary.

The focus of the production, which contained 25 vignettes, was to bring to life the unique history of Canada, its culture and citizens. Students were engaged in researching, writing, and ultimately staging and performing this amazing look back at the rich history of our country.

In the end, the cast and crew received a rousing standing ovation from the crowd in recognition of their efforts.

Teacher Lesley LaCouvee offered, ‘Our play exemplifies the power of project-based learning and has exceeded our expectations, in multiple curricular areas, for all of the students involved.’
