Damian Follett is the uncle of a Grade 5 student in our school and he has entered a national song writing contest. His song sends a great message about inclusion, diversity and kindness which is so important to Paradise Elementary in helping to create such a positive learning environment in our school. I encourage all to listen to his song and vote as it has a very fitting message for our world today. Take a listen: Please share this link: Damian's amazing song "One Human Race". http://www.cbcmusic.ca/searchlight/entries/1/0/0/24/damian

We appreciate your time, efforts and dedication to the students of our school.
