It was all so exciting!
Last week my two children (Willow and Fisher) and two students from West Point Grey Academy (Kate and Mathew) were interviewed by Kush of Kids CBC in front of our KidArt Spirit Bear named "WPGA School Spirit".
Kids CBC is a hugely popular kids show viewed every weekday morning across Canada by the Canadian Broadcasting Corporation, CBC.
The kids were filmed at the location of the bear in Vancouver, B.C. on Tenth Ave and Sasamat in the West Point Grey area.
Kush, the Westcoast Host of Kids CBC, interviewed the kids as a ‘Roving reporter on the scene of the exciting sightings of spirit bears all over the Vancouver area!".
The kids loved the ‘overly dramatic’ Kush in her very loud pink jacket as they explained to her that the bear was actually a friendly bear and that they were some of the children that created the original artwork for the bear.
It was a very special opportunity for the kids to be involved in such a fun project. They were all very excited about the chance to be able to be on television. It was an experience I’m sure they will not soon forget!
The segment will be aired several times in the fall of 2006 with the exact dates and times TBA.
I will let you know when it airs so you can check it out. (Canadians that is.) After it airs I will see about posting the video so you can all see it.
It was really cute to see those happy little guys talking so proudly of their great art!
