Celebrate winter by joining us for a storytelling solstice walk through the wetland trails at Evergreen Brick Works. Make sure to come early and make a paper lantern to fill the darkness with extra light.
Note: This is not a school trip – Parents would need to arrange to go on their own, if they want to. Since the solstice is an important part of our Waldorf approach, we thought some families would like to take advantage of the opportunity to be in nature in the middle of the city at the wonderful Brickworks site.
For this GivingTuesday, on November 28, A Different Booklist Cultural Centre (A neighbouring Cultural Centre) will be conducting a story telling session. We would like to invite kindergartners and first graders to this fun, community event.

Come join us at the ADBCC for a fun storytime session with the author of “Big Red the Bully”, Jholane Habor, who will read her book and share her experiences of writing it and the inspiration behind it.
GivingTuesday is a new movement for giving and volunteering taking place every Tuesday after Black Friday and Cyber Monday. Charities, companies and individuals have the opportunity to share commitments, support and spread the word about their favourite causes and essentially care about others.
