SINGING because of THE RAIN



On a rainy day when the out-of-schoolers could not go outside, the crew decided that they wanted to practice singing and dancing for the grandmas and grandpas at the Churchill Manor and the Grey Nuns Hospital. The children will be visiting there soon to perform for the patients, staff and visitors.
These performances allow inter-generational experiences for the children and are appreciated by the community. It is a rewarding exercise for all. BRAVO!

ANOTHER FANTASTIC FIELD TRIP



The Tawa gang was fortunate to visit Tree House indoor playground recently.
The gang explored the entire facility and had a blast. Children were busy and had a fun time with their siblings, friends and teachers. They cannot wait to go again to the Tree House.
The Out-of-School Care children later drew pictures and wrote stories about their experience on this field trip.
Don’t you wish you were there with us?

MUSIC TO MY EARS



The Tawa toddlers enjoy playing musical instruments in the play room.
Children are interested in playing the drums and the guitar all the time. They want to listen to the cd player and learn new songs.
An art activity that allowed the children to glue and paste was offered and the Tawa toddlers had a great time decorating a musical note.
 Some great musicians will emerge from our crew of Tawa toddlers, for sure!

AN RCMP OFFICER VISITS TAWA FRIENDS



Sergeant Clayton Wilburn who works with the K Division of the RCMP visited the crew at Tawa and gave us a great presentation on safety.
Tawa Out-of-School and preschoolers were excited to see an officer in full uniform and they wanted to know about his “toys”. He showed us his whistle, telephone and the magic stick (the baton) and he brought over some cool posters. The crew learned about personal and street safety.
Sergeant Wilburn was impressed with the children’s knowledge about street signs and safety information. The gang was equally impressed with his handcuffs and baton.
Certainly a cool afternoon spent with an impressive officer!

PERFORMING FOR THE SENIORS AT CHURCHILL MANOR



Recently our Out-of-School Care crew visited the seniors at Churchill Manor.
It was exciting to see how happy the Churchill Manor grandma’s and grandpa’s were to see the children dance, sing and play games that were interactive.
They were rewarded with cookies and juice (yum!) for their hard work. We feel this is exceptional service for our friends to learn about volunteering and for strengthening inter-generational experiences.
