An amazing, fun way to connect with each other as well as discover more about yourself. Thank you!

Louise brought out rhythm we did not ] know we had! Drums to bring FOCUS in a group of grade 12 English students! Terrific idea!!

Our grade 7Fr students had a fun and rhythmic start to the week thanks to a unique drumming workshop offered by Malicounda Team Building and Events based in Quebec. The workshop was offered in English to our 5A and 5B students and in French to 5Fr, 6Fr, and 7Fr. The drumming circles gave students the opportunity to see and play various instruments as they wove various rhythm patterns together in a highly engaging and creative format. Merci, Mme Louise, for your enthusiasm and vision. We are so glad you made TA Norris Middle School a part of your Canadian tour!
