Winter Concert
On Tuesday night Swansea PS held their first concert at Windermere United Church.  It was a wonderful concert that, not only marked the start of the festive season and celebrated 120 years of music at Swansea, but established another partnership in the Swansea community.  Thank you to all the students who performed, the music teachers that worked with the students, the staff who volunteered their time to help supervise the students and to Mrs. West, who once again put together a spectacular concert.
