American Band Young the Giant visits Flamborough Centre
By Owen & Charlotte, Grade 8 students at Flamborough Centre 
On November 7, the staff and students of Flamborough Centre elementary were treated to a performance by the American rock band, Young the Giant. Band members: Sameer, Jacob, Eric, Payam, Franćois and Ehson put on a dazzling show; the students and teachers alike enjoyed their wafting tones and harmonious solos. 
The students had the opportunity to ask the band questions like “what inspired you to make music?” Sameer answered, “when I was younger I thought most people loved music as much as I did, and most people didn’t. So when I grew up, I wanted to make people happy through music.” They finished the concert with two more songs from their four albums. A big thanks to Mr Bhaduri for organizing this event and getting his relative Sameer to play for us.
We will focus on improved data, professional learning and relationships to support Positive Culture and Well-Being in all HWDSB schools and departments. Learn about our celebrations and future plans bit.ly/2zzGHW4
