 Cycle 2 & 3 students from St. Gabriel  Elementary School in Point St. Charles worked collaboratively with  neighbouring French schools to create a float for the St. Patrick’s Day Parade. This was an excellent exercise in bringing the two communities together.  They put in over 40 hours, after school and during March break, to learn fencing, make costumes, props and other decorations for the float.  The theme of the float was based on an old Irish Tale that was told to them by storyteller Mike Burns.
