MP Charlie Angus Visits St. Cecilia

 

On Thursday March 8th MP Charlie Angus, along with Andy Maize and Josh Finlayson from the Toronto Roots Rock band Skydiggers visited St. Cecilia Catholic School. They performed "Church Bells Ringing" with the grade 7 and 8 students who learned the song for a Christmas activity St. Cecilia. Mr. Angus was so impressed that the kids took the time to learn a song that he wrote almost 30 years ago, that he asked to visit the school in person and perform the song with students. The Skydiggers band members, who have also recorded the song, came as musical accompaniment. Mr. Angus spoke to students about his work as an MP and social activist, as well as his work as an advocate for Indigenous youth in Northern Ontario. He also talked about Shannen's Dream, a Canadian youth-driven movement advocating for equitable education funding for Indigenous children.
