ESL - October 2015
Students in Mr. Hobin's ESL class were asked to donate their time to design and paint a rain barrel to be displayed at the Purple Onion Festival September 20th at Millennium Park. That day the barrel raised $150 at Silent Auction - with proceeds going to Youth Unlimited Lakefield, New Canadians Centre and Seeds of Change. This activity got students involved, engaged and thinking about the theme of climate change. Way to go TAS ESL!
