Grace Village People
October 10, 2018 | Students travelled to Huntingville this afternoon to spend time at Grace Village.
Following a successful first year in 2017-18 as a Canadian chapter of Sweet Readers, the group has more than doubled in size this year. This afternoon, eight of the 14 students who have signed up for the extracurricular activity visited one of our nearby retirement homes to engage with residents. Mrs. Carey, who has been facilitating the visits since the project's inception, said about the group “they seem really engaged this year.” Today’s activity saw students and residents talking and laughing as they played a storytelling game. Future visits will include a full program of activities such as board games, selfies, drum circles, dance lessons, carpet bowling, and even a smoothie making contest!
We look forward to more smiles from young and old!
