At the event we met some bright, enthusiastic and engaging young lads from the Oasis Skateboard Factory (OSF). This is a cool, innovative program which last year won the Ken Spencer Award for Innovation in Teaching & Learning, given out by the Canadian Education Association each year.
From the OSF brochure:
OSF is the first school site in the [TDSB] fully dedicated to offering all subjects with a focus on skateboard design and street art. This is an innovative reengagement program that helps students experience success and develop transferable creative and entrepreneurial skills, while helping them to graduate from high school.This sounds to me like a terrific initiative and, if the representatives we met last night are any indication, it is doing some great work.
|How did we ever think we could eat all that??!|
Congratulations to my bright, talented, inspirational and lovely partner on a job well done.
