Yennadon Story Pole Ceremony

Today our school Story Pole was blessed and welcomed by local Elders.  We all had a chance to put a feather with our memory of carving the pole written on it.  This has been a community building process and a three year journey for our school.  Our Story Pole will then be in our library for everyone to see and enjoy.  Everyone got a red ribbon to remember the ceremony and a placed a rock from the Alouette River at the front of the school.  Our class brought the rocks from the river and in a week or so will return them to the river.  They symbolized the spirit of our river and the surrounding area.

Here is a video of the Story Pole entering our gym...
