The new school year has started with a team of awesome new students! In our first week we moved into our new classroom in the Scadding Court Community Centre and then walked over to Sleeping Giant where Josh talked about being a young entrepreneur running a skateboard art gallery. Our community partner Roarockit Skateboard Company generously hosted a BBQ for our students and then the week ended at the opening of an art show by skateboarding legend Steve Olson.
