The staff and students at Dumont Technical Institute Regina Campus held a Christmas celebration on December 16, 2019. For a moment in time, the programs coordinated schedules, clinicals, and exams to have all staff and students participate in the Christmas Party.
The halls were filled with Ugly Sweaters, Elves, Christmas Jammies and Festive Outfits galore. Laughter rang through the building as the classes met for a friendly competition with a Christmas Kahoot and a Métis Kahoot. “I learned a lot about my Métis culture,” one Office Administration student said about the competition.
Following the Kahoot, the students created their own Métis inspired Christmas decorations. They used the Medicines to Help Us kits for inspiration. Their creations were amazing! It was a perfect infusion of Christmas and Métis culture. As one of the students noted, “I like that I made my first Christmas decoration with a Métis symbol and my name.”
In true Métis style, we had a gigantic feast. The potluck dishes were endless. The food was nourishing to our bodies and souls, and the conversation was rejuvenating. The Christmas party marked a great start of the festive season.
Thank you to GDI Training and Employment for providing prizes for our games and competitions. Much fun was had by all.
