What Teachers Are Saying

Grade 5 TeacherMillarvilel Community School

All the materials were supplied and the Presenter was organized and on time. Also, this was a unique opportunity that the students were engaged in for 2 hours straight! Absolutely fantastic! Even the parents were raving about it! (In-School program)

Grade 6 TeacherKing George School

It was great to see how engaged the kids were in the project. Everyone enjoyed it, even the ones who aren't too keen on organized activities were visibly engaged (as well as the parent volunteers!). I also liked how individualized it was. The students could choose whether to decorate their maple leaf or not, and how to decorate it if they chose to do so, and it didn't affect the end product as they all turned out wonderfully. The Presenter was also great with the students. (In-School program)

H.M., Grade 2 TeacherForest Heights School

The soapstone was prepared and ready for the students to work on. The steps were clear and well thought out. Every student achieved a successful end product. (Field Trip On-Demand program)

K.W., Grade 5 TeacherBertha Kennedy Catholic School

I love watching my students start with a raw product and the excitement when they see the colours of their stone. The final product that my students have once they are done is really beautiful. (Video Conference program)
