On November 9 th the National Arts Centre will link three groups of students from across Canada through videoconference technology to create Music Bridge II. Students at all 3 schools will perform an excerpt from the Winter concerto of Vivaldi's Four Seasons and prepare creative responses to Vivaldi's music.

Stride Ave. Community School is a grade 4-7 school in Burnaby, British Columbia. The school population of three hundred students is culturally and linguistically diverse, with students coming from over fifty different countries and speaking over thirty languages. Stride Ave. Community School is also fortunate to have a large number of Aboriginal students. Both staff and students benefit from learning first hand about our First Nations cultures.
Our school opened in 1965. It was the very first junior high school in Newfoundland and was named in honour of Anglican Bishop Philip Abraham. In 1987 Bishop Abraham became an elementary school which is what it remains today. We have two streams of Kindergarten to Grade 6 students who are very lucky to have a staff of dedicated teachers who want to offer children many different educational experiences. Our students often enjoy drama, choir, recorder, band, dance and painting classes during their school day. All of our staff and students, particularly the Grade 5 students, are tremendously excited to have the wonderful opportunity to learn and interact with students from other Canadian provinces and, in addition, are looking forward to meeting Mr. Zukerman on November 9 th!
