SCDSB Band “Heroes” Rocks Tom Davies Square

SCDSB rock bank Heroes was invited to kick off Children’s Mental Health Week (May 2 – May 9, 2010) at Tom Davies Square on May 3, 2010. The band members are comprised of students from Pius XII and St. Charles College and are under the direction of Pius XII Principal Luisa Bianchin and produced by Derek Zaher (educational assistant at Pius XII). The theme of Children’s Mental Health Week this year is “Bouncing Back” and Mayor John Rodriguez opened the event with a proclamation ceremony. Immediately following this, Cassandra Bazinet – lead vocalist of the band performed the opening song with Liza Rizzardi, a grade 2 student from Corpus Christi Catholic Elementary School and finished to a standing ovation. The band then performed a set of 8 songs that had the crowd clapping and moving to the music. Heroes will be the opening band for the SCDSB board wide Faith Day on May 27 and the students are quite excited for this huge event. “Today was good practice for the band to get ready for the Faith day.” said Principal Louisa Bianchin. “The band has been working so hard – usually three times a week and they are quite excited as the board wide Faith Day will be an amazing opportunity to perform in front of thousands of people!”
