World Oceans Day

On World Oceans Day,  June 8, people around our blue planet will celebrate and honour the ocean, which connects us all! 
A small group of Ocean lovers on Salt Spring are joining in with an afternoon of fun ocean themed activities for children 6-12 years old at the Salt Spring Public Library. The event will offer book readings, videos, slide shows, games, crafts and even dancing!
The  FREE event will be held in the Program room at the public library on  SATURDAY JUNE 8, 1:00-4:00 pm.
Space is limited so pre-registration at the library is advised!

The students of Mr. McPhee and Ms. Hingston’ classes have been involved in a book writing project this spring guided by author/ photographer Ann Donahue as part of the Artist in the Classroom program. The students created  a book entitled Reef Creatures Continued and a copy of their book will be donated to the Salt Spring Public Library on Saturday June 8 during the World Oceans Day event for children. We hope that many of the students involved in the project will be in attendance.  Ms Hingston's classroom has a copy, Mr. McPhee has a copy and also one is in our Fernwood Library. A big thank you to staff involved in the project: Janice Parker, Melissa Hingston, Andrew McPhee, Linda Lee, Mylene Dammel-Sherrin and Rhea Miller.
