Alex sings O Canada in four languages at NSCC Pictou Convocation

Better late than never…

The 2013 Convocation Ceremony at my campus of the Nova Scotia Community College (NSCC) fell on June 21st, which is National Aboriginal Day. In my opinion, Convocation is the most special day of the year – the day staff & students work so hard toward for two years (or more). This year’s ceremony was extra special for me for a couple of reasons: (1) It was my first Convocation ceremony at Pictou Campus; and (2) our son Alex sang “O Canada” at the beginning of the ceremony in English, Mi’kmaq, French, and American Sign Language.  He was accompanied on piano by fellow faculty member, Kirby Coolen. (Who also happens to be Alex’s godmother’s first cousin – it’s always a small world in Nova Scotia!)

Today I came across the webcast and I thought I would share it.  Alex’s O Canada begins about eight-minutes in.
