Making a Difference

1 Feb

Congratulations to My Magic Hands students at Valleyfield Junior Public School – led by instructor James Alan – who were featured on Global TV’s Making A Difference segment today.

WATCH the Global Video Clip.

We are so proud to have had so many individuals involved in our performing arts program, and for so many to have come away with new and important life skills including problem solving, critical thinking and logistical planning. Since the program’s inception in 2004, we have run 94 sessions in different centres throughout the Greater Toronto Area (GTA) engaging 1,670 participants584 volunteers and interacting with 5,695 community members. The program continues today thanks to the generous support of our title sponsor, Slaight Communications.

Global TV’s Susan Hay stopped by to visit the Grade 4/5 class of 23 students at Valleyfield Junior Public School to see how these kids were doing. The news crew caught the children in their third of eight classes where they showcased a few of their new magic tricks, and spent a great deal of the lesson learning more.

We are looking forward to seeing these young people in their eight and final week where they will perform the Big Show for their classmates at school.

Keep up the great work Valleyfield – and thank you Global TV and Susan Hay for sharing wonder!
