Steve Slade workshop – local school children create a song for Tumbler Ridge

Steve Slade was in Tumbler Ridge performing a jam session at the Tumbler Ridge Public Library on Monday, October 15, as part of his tour of the northeast region. The jam session was held with local musicians.

Slade also held a two day workshop, one for Miss Kennedy?s class of 25 students at Tumbler Ridge Elementary on Monday, and another for the Grade Seven Class at Tumbler Ridge Senior Secondary. The Grade Seven?s created the following song during the workshop.

Won?t Stay Home Alone by TRSS grade 7

Chorus: no, no, no, no, no, no, no, I won?t stay home alone (2x)

Some folks like to swim a lot

They think they?re a fish

Some folks play their video games Eating nacho?s off a dish

My friends and I play hockey

at the community centre?s rink

Then we go home to our families

And play shrinky dinks and tiddley winks

Chorus: no, no, no, no, no, no, no, I won?t stay home alone (2x)

My family lives in the dinosaur age

So I just hang out with my pets

My friends and I go ride our quads

We?ll see the sasquatch I bet!

Chorus: no, no, no, no, no, no, no, I won?t stay home alone (2x)

Miss Kennedy?s Grades 5-6 Class

Tumbler Ridge is a Beautiful Place

Tumbler Ridge is a beautiful place Tumbler Ridge is in a wonderful space We?ve got mountains, rivers and lakes Tumbler Ridge is a beautiful place.

You can hike, You can bike,

You can fish, You can swim,

You can kayak and canoe too.

You can dirtbike, You can Quad,

You can get lost in the fog,

There?s lots of things for you to do.

Tumbler Ridge is a beautiful place Tumbler Ridge is in a wonderful space We?ve got mountains, rivers and lakes Tumbler Ridge is a beautiful place.

In the spring you can sneeze,

In the winter you can freeze,

Face, fingers, nose and toes.

In the summer it?s so hot,

And in the fall you know it?s not, Especially when the north wind blows.

Tumbler Ridge is a beautiful place Tumbler Ridge is in a wonderful space We?ve got mountains, rivers and lakes Tumbler Ridge is a beautiful place.

Sometimes we get forest fires

Trees go up in flames

Humans and the animals run scared. You know this is no game

It?s really a big shame

?Cause we could lose this wonderful place.

Tumbler Ridge is a beautiful place Tumbler Ridge is in a wonderful space We?ve got mountains, rivers and lakes Tumbler Ridge is a beautiful place.
