St. Anne Elementary School and The Art For Aid Project Helping Art In Remote Communities
St. Anne's Catholic School in Ottawa generously offered us some space in their wonderful shipment going to Alookie School in Pangnirtung Nunavut in support of their community.
The Grade 2 teachers involved in this project are Catherine Latour, Lisa Chow, Michelle Walker, Ben Spindler, and Carolyn St. Louis.
Thank you Carolyn for this gift!
