Mr. Speaker, last week there was a spectacular concert at l'Odyssée primary school in the Saint Nicolas sector of Lévis. Its 416 pupils treated their audience to renditions of a number of compositions by artists known for raising public awareness of environmental questions and of the need for children's rights to be respected in the world.
The performers, the kindergarten and primary students and staff members, interpreted songs by Annie Brocoli, Gilles Vigneault, Yves Duteil and Luc Plamondon, and even by Bruno Lemay, the school cook, who shares their concern for the environment.
The theme of the evening, expertly organized by teachers Alice Desrochers and Josée d'Anjou, was “Sing for a better world”.
Numerous other volunteers, musicians and technicians have contributed their efforts to help these young people put their message of hope out on CD.
Congratulations to this new generation for their contribution to making our world a better place.
