Stream of Dreams

The Computer lab
The last three weeks I have been teaching at Chris Hadfield Public School. I've been teaching computers to grades 1-3 and the occasional art lesson. It has been great fun! During my time there, the whole school was involved in the Stream of Dreams project with Halton Conservation. It started with the Eco Tote Bag Project at the Milton Mall. One of the Hadfield students, Sana won an Eco drawing contest and was awarded $1000 for the school. The Stream of Dreams was the chosen project and over a 1000 wooden fish were cut, sanded and painted by volunteers and students. The students learned about clean water and conservation of fresh water. I was fortunate to be able to paint a fish as well.

This is truly an inspiring project. Thanks goes to Sana, her art teacher, Miss Walsh and the Conservation girls. The big reveal was accompanied by student poetry and art work. The whole school assembled outside to celebrate. A project like this is sure to make a lasting impression on these students!
