Students and staff at Maple Creek Composite School celebrated National Aboriginal Day today with a free bannock burger lunch. Thank you to Caroline Mosquito and the ladies from Nekaneet First Nations who made the bannock for us, and thank you Gilbert Oakes and his crew for setting up the teepee.
Living Sky Casino, David Fox, was instrumental in organizing Ted Nolan, former NHL player and coach, to speak to our students after lunch. Introduced by Grade 11 student Keegan Delorme, Mr. Nolan spoke to the students about perseverance and believing in yourself.
SRC President and Vice President presented Mr. Nolan and Mr. Fox with special gifts and thanked them for helping to celebrate National Aboriginal Day!
