Congratulations to Tyler Del Pino (far right) and his music students from Valley Gardens Middle School for winning the CBC Playlist Challenge! Valley Gardens was one of 10 schools chosen from across Canada for this contest.
The project involved a series of activities that teachers could use to build their classes' custom Canadian music playlist. The playlist is a reflection of the unique character of a school, region and students' interests. Valley Gardens' playlist included Canadian favourites by Tom Cochrane, The Tragically Hip, Bryan Adams, The Crash Test Dummies, Corb Lund, Shad, and more.
The students have been celebrated on CBC Music and the Music Counts websites. They will receive $1,000 towards musical equipment for their school. Well done!
