We Are the World

Congratulations to all of our students on their exceptional performances in Richland’s Holiday Concert. Under the guidance of Richland’s Performing Arts teacher, Ms Pitt, the students developed a concert that embraced and celebrated Unicef’s Convention of the Rights of the Child. Richland’s emergent curriculum meant that students were directly engaged in the process of song selection and the connections to Unicef’s articles of the Convention. Their dedication was obvious throughout the performance, which left the audience emotionally inspired.
Honouring and respecting children are part of Richland’s culture, and as a community we are excited to become the first school in York Region to be designated by Unicef Canada as a Rights Respecting School.

    The Concert was amazing! It was so much fun to sing all the songs and everyone was just on their feet having a great time. I enjoyed singing Believe with the rest of my class and watching all the other classes perform. Everyone sounded beautiful and you could feel the love in the room.

    Ms. Pitt had conducted it beautifully, and the auditorium looked so colourful! The concerts theme was ” We Are The World” and it really showed that we are the world.

    Congratulations Richland! Keep up the magnificent work!
