Edinburgh in Ottawa

The choir of Edinburgh Elementary School in Montreal West recently returned from a two day trip to Ottawa where they performed four times: in Commissioner's Park, as part of the Tulip Festival;  in the ByWard Market;  at John Paul II Schoo; and in the Rotunda of the Parliament Buildings  where students met  Liberal Party leader Michael Ignatieff and NDG Lachine Liberal MP Marlene Jennings. The choir is under the direction of Mme Johanne Poirier-Ledoux, a Grade 4 French teacher. There are 42 members from Grades 4 and 5.  The kids sing in English, French, Italian and Créole.
