Happy St. Patrick's Day!

In celebration and preparation of St. Patrick's Day, the Academy of St. Dorothy welcomed the Bagpiper, Kevin Fair and his band, from Pipes & Drums to our school on Thursday, March 16. The children were able to hear authentic Bagpipers playing some tunes they knew such as God Bless America, and a very special Happy Birthday song to Kayla in Grade 4. They even were able to hear some classical Irish music as well. The question and answer session proved to be very informative! We learned all about their uniforms, their culture, and why this is such a large part of the Irish heritage.
