World Music Program - The Compassion Project

Congratulations to all World Music Program students in grades 6-12 ... and Brockton Alumni... on their performance at the Blueshore Centre for the Performing Arts at Capilano University on Wednesday evening! With the performance being on Valentine's Day, the students and directors decided to focus the theme of the evening's performance on love and compassion. Students took the opportunity to share their deepening understanding of what it means to be loving, and identified 7 ingredients of love; Gratitude; Thoughtfulness and Integrity; Friendship and Inclusivity; Empathy; Trust; Compassion and Kindness; Celebrating Diversity.   
All of the music and words spoken from the stage brought this theme to life, and the students played with passion, skill, energy, and a lot of HEART!  
An enormous thank you to the many teachers, parents, and friends of Brockton who made the evening a success. A particular thank you to our Directors of the World Music Program.  See details below:
