Finding Relevance and Meaning in Learning

On Tuesday November 7th, over 200 students representing dance, drama, visual arts, and music shared their talents in a moving Remembrance Day ceremony honouring men and women who have served. The service highlighted stories of Old Boys from The Grove who gave their lives during World War II. Students performed in front of an audience of more than 500 students, staff, former LCS alumni ‘Old Boys’ and the Lakefield community. 

The ceremony, over one hour-long, took more than two months of preparation and involved students from Grades 9 to 12. Students were involved in every aspect of the service, from preparing the scripts and performing theatrical plateaus to creating multimedia slideshows and interpretive dance pieces choreographed with live musical performances by Lorelei, Concert Choir, Jazz Band and Rock Choir.

For some students, finding relevance and meaning in historical events over 70 years old can be challenging. Igniting the imagination of students through activities that bring to life the stories of others using a more expressive medium, like the performing arts, allows them to explore historical themes and events in a way that not only engenders a passion for learning, but also imparts the responsibility of authentic storytelling.
