The Holy Family Catholic Regional Division (HFCRD) is excited to learn one of its longest standing teachers is being recognized for her contributions to music in Alberta.
Good Shepherd School teacher and choir leader, Nicola Quigley is being profiled by the Alberta Music Advocacy Alliance’s (AMAA) Spotlight Series, which celebrates music in Alberta communities.
“All of Nicola’s contributions over her 30-plus years with our division have been a true blessing,” said Superintendent Betty Turpin. “It’s hard to find someone with as much energy and passion for teaching music, so this is well-deserved recognition for a great teacher and a wonderful woman.”
Quigley was nominated for the AMAA Spotlight Series by her peers at the Alberta Orff Association.
“Showing children the beauty of music and how it brings us all together is a passion,” said Quigley. “It’s been a blessing to be able to share my love of music with our students for the last 30-plus years.”
The Orff Approach is a teaching method for music that combines movement, drama and speech into lessons.
