On Wednesday November 6, 2013, Parkview Public School hosted a Citizenship Court in our gymnasium to welcome 25 new Canadians into our wonderful country! Mr. James, Ms Murphy, and the Grade 5 students at Parkview worked very hard to decorate the gym with flags and posters, welcome all guests, and learn about the process of becoming a Canadian citizen.
Students from Grades 4 through 8 were privileged to witness these 25 citizens from 18 different countries become official Canadian citizens! Student volunteers also welcomed our new citizens by presenting them with flags and pins and parent volunteers prepared and served snacks to our guests.
It was a wonderful learning experience for all students at Parkview and an exciting and special day for 25 new Canadian citizens!
