Environmental connections - Q & A with Sarah Smout

Creativity v’s Curriculum

Stories touch everyone’s imagination, but none more so than children. That is why storytelling and that arts play such an important part in a child’s life.

Volunteers - the lifeblood of Society

When was the last time you gave something back to your community? Maybe you helped a neigbour. Perhaps you volunteered at your local theatre? Maybe you gave some time to a community garden project. Remember the feeling you got from giving something back? If you're anything like me, it's a warm fuzzy feeling. My experience of volunteering has always been positive.
