July 2021 Report

So here we are another summer in the pandemic with all the health protocols and restrictions but the children and team are used to it. The exciting part is that we are moving into our summer program. Forest school and the team and children are ready for it! We have a few new faces at Splash with new people joining to enhance the ratio for a safe summer. Thank goodness we were successful in obtaining that grant! The team had a professional development day recently and learned all about nature curriculum. Our Elder, Ko’ona came, lit the fire and shared teachings and information on medicines. She shared her wonderful drumming with us. Mavis Lewis Weber shared a great workshop and Amanda shared his forest school expertise with everyone. This created an amazing learning experience for everyone. Unfortunately, we were not able to raise enough money to have forest school for the whole summer. Each Centre will be going for 3 weeks. The rest of the summer will be full of exploration, gardening and it will be like camp! The new Centre is has had delays because of the pandemic, but we are on track for opening end of August early September. Things are looking up!!! Don’t forget to check out everything on Facebook. Enjoy the summer and stay safe!
