Joe Pierre, Aboriginal education enhancement agreement facilitator for School District 5, visited Gordon Terrace Elementary, where he told native stories to students in all the primary classes in celebration of National Aboriginal Week.

His busy day began with raising the tipi, assisted by students in Mrs. Grady’s Grade 3/4 class.

During the morning and early afternoon children were treated to stories while sitting inside the tipi.

Mr. Wilson’s grade 3 class helped take down the tipi at the end of the day.
