St James Town Community Perspectives and Winchester Public School

Winchester Public School

Last week we visited the St James Town Service Providers Network where we presented our 4-year Promise in the Park project with the hope to develop new community partnerships, and we also facilitated a simple art activity designed to explore community perspectives on St James Town. Thanks to the network Co-Chairs Diana Mavanduse (Community Development, Dixon Hall) and Niv Balachandran (Newcomer Health Team, Sherbourne Health Centre) for the invitation.

We also visited our young friends in Lee Hicks' classroom at Winchester Public School where we explored the legend of Fisher and Skyland (described in a previous post) through storytelling, drawing, and curating a timeline of moments that stood out for students.
