The children and staff of John Caboto Elementary School in Ahunstic took part in the Canada-wide Music Monday sponsored by the Coalition for Music Education in Canada. This is expected to become an annual event celebrating school music programs across Canada. At 1 pm Eastern Time the students and staff of John Caboto assembled in the school yard under the direction of music teacher Stephan Gaines to sing the song “A Little Music.” At the same time schools from Newfoundland (2:30 pm) to B.C. (10 a.m.) were singing or playing the same piece of music. The purpose of the event was to demonstrate how music unites us across the country and the importance of music programs in our schools.
