Testimonials

“We had an amazing time on the walk. We learned a great deal and had a lot to talk about when we got back to school! Our guide was amazing! She was really patient, understanding and accommodating with my ESL students. The students said they actually were able to understand her fully and were very grateful that she was so friendly and patient. We also did the activity from the website, which definitely furthered the students understanding of everything we learned. “

–Sandy D, Family Studies and Geography Teacher, Greenwood S.S.

“The Art Walk was amazing; my grade 6 students got to walk, climb, draw and photograph Toronto. I look forward to taking this field trip every year.”
