Baobab Community was busy this past weekend….we hosted a teacher workshop on Saturday from 9-4. Twelve teachers from both the Ottawa Public and Catholic Boards participated in an intense day of drumming, singing and dancing with me here at the studio. We also discussed lots of available resources and had a visit from our resident art instructor, Maureen Clarke to discuss curriculum extensions for this material. What a wonderful group it was to work with, everyone really dedicated to bringing the best to their students.
On Sunday, many of the Baobab Community and family and friends gathered at the new ClockTower Brew Pub in Westboro for our second annual Quiz night Fundraiser. Let’s just say, its amazing the things we do know, and amazing the things we don’t! 80 people participated in teams of various sizes, responding to the variety of questions put forth by Quiz Master Paul Paquet (Cornerstone Word Company). Teams with the highest and lowest score received prizes….thanks to all who donated those: 20Q, Collected Works, Nadine Powers, Arlene Armstrong. Evie Gray.
Special thanks also to Claire Thompson, Michael Wilson and Hayley de Bie for their organizing efforts. The event raised more than $1400 for Baobab’s activities!
