Happy Birthday Canada!

Our teacher Mrs. Barks is originally from Canada. To celebrate July 1 - which is Canada's birthday, we had a special assembly and this is a video that she and her husband (who teaches in room 18) showed us. Both classes also got on stage to sing the Canadian national anthem and another song called "I am Canadian." Mr. and Mrs. Barks told us some great stories about camping in northern Saskatchewan with the bears and HUGE mosquitoes!

As if all of this wasn't already exciting enough, ... the Canadian Consulate and Trade Office in Auckland sent us some Canadian flag tattoos, pens, pins, and balloons!! Room 12 and 18 got to wear the tattoos and we gave the other items out as special prizes at the assembly.

Hope you enjoy this video as much as we did!!
