The students and staff at Naramata Elementary School worked hard to create an inclusive Christmas concert with a focus on Canada’s culture.

The students put on two performances of their concert on Dec. 13, and both were well-attended by friends and family.

The music was specially chosen for the concert to represent a mix of Canadian artists, including Bryan Adams and Stompin’ Tom Connors, and the audience was treated to entertaining dialogue about hockey and sportsmanship.

It was noted at the beginning of the afternoon performance that many students were missing from school that day, but many of the kids that were there stepped up and learned new lines to help pull the performance together.
