We have been selected one of only six arts infusion champion schools in British Columbia!!
Ewa Swatickya will be our Infusion Teaching Artist (ITA) for the next three years. Without the support of our Parent Auxilary and ArtStarts in Schools, this program could not be possible.
We are offering 'clay play' days for families very soon! Stay tuned...
