L’École des Sept-sommets celebrated the end of term with a Christmas concert on Thursday.

The school’s 57 students performed songs, skits and dances for each other and their parents all in French, of course.

“In each of the classes, kids have worked with their classroom teacher and we also have a language assistant here, Marie-Christine [Boucher], this year, so she worked with every single class as well,” explained Marie-Josée Beaulieu, principal.

Boucher taught every class to perform their own version of “Vive le vent” (French version of “Jingle Bells”).

The kindergarten and Grade 1 class performed the song with boom whackers and the Grade 1 and 2 class performed it with percussion instruments.

The Grade 1 and 2 class also sang “Mon beau sapin” (“O Christmas Tree”) in a mix of French, English and German.

Boucher also runs two after school programs, the choir and Circque Musique.

The choir sang “L’enfant au tambour” (French version of “Little Drummer Boy”) and “Noël des enfants du mond,” and the students of Cirque Musique performed a number of tricks to music. Some spun plates on sticks, others tossed devil’s sticks in the air and two girls twirled the same giant hula hoop.

The Grade 3 and 4 class performed the song “Noël n’est pas au magasin” (“Christmas Is Not in a Store”) and did a skit called“Noël d’hier à aujourd’hui” (“Christmas from Yesterday to Today”), where they explored how Christmas traditions have evolvedn over time.

The Grade 5, 6 and 7 class performed “Vive le vent” on several different instruments including piano and guitar.

Some of the older students Emry McGill, Sawyer Dale-Smith and Léa Boiridy-Graves also performed winter poems they’d written in class.

The performance ended with all the students performing “Vive le vent” and then their parents joined them for a Rigodon dance.
