This morning under sunny skies, Oodenawi Public School (385 Sixteen Mile Dr., Oakville) hosted an official opening celebration with students, staff, community members, officials and dignitaries.
A highlight of the ceremony included attendees being welcomed by an elder from the Mississaugas of the First Credit, followed by a traditional First Nations song called Little Boy Drum. There was a tour of the school and refreshments in the library.
This was the second school this month celebrating its first year of operation.
