Prime Minister John J. Abbott knew the value of music in education. He knew how important it was to compliment it so that music could continue to flourish wherever it might be taught & learned.
"On behalf of the board of education, I offer congratulations for this wonderful recognition,...we are proud of the music program in the district. It is an exemplary program, an exemplary school & an exemplary district."
