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.
