The win­ner of the load of wood, do­nated by the Ber­ri­gan Li­ons Club, was Janet Gorman. Sec­ond prize, an ash bucket do­nated by Jac­quetta Sloan, was won by Don McLen­nan.

Teach­ers videoed each group and the chil­dren then watched the recital on the smart­board and lis­tened to the sound ef­fects with­out the vis­ual.

Teach­ers and stu­dents said they were im­pressed with the re­sults.
