The easing of COVID-19 restrictions means the return of school performances. Pineview Elementary hosted Lheidli T'enneh First Nation music star Kym Gouchie, on Wednesday.
According to school principal Jason Schwartz this was "our first assembly in over two years, due to the pandemic. What a wonderful way to connect and celebrate, with Kym Gouchie."
They also got to do it on their new floor. During spring break, Pineview Elementary had their old gymnasium floor renovated and this was the inaugural event on the new surface.
The students were treated to Gouchie's signature blend of modern folk music, powered by her strong Indigenous roots right here in this very territory. The local singer-songwriter is a cultural ambassador for the Lheidli T'enneh people and an example to local students that you can come from this area and become renowned in your field. Gouchie is a national music figure and has three more SD57 shows scheduled in the weeks ahead.
