Magicana brings magic to Victoria’s Torquay School

22 May

During her trip to British Columbia, Magicana’s executive director, Julie Eng, was invited by Miss Amanda to perform for her class, at Torquay Elementary School in Victoria, BC.

Amanda had only heard about Julie’s work as a magician and was intrigued by our community program, My Magic Hands. Amanda made an email inquiry and coordinated with Division Five’s excellent teacher, Mrs. Boulton. The show was held on May 22.

The children at Division Five were very hospitable and created their own magic with the giant “Thank You” card received by Julie.

Thank you, Amanda, for inviting Julie and thank you Mrs. Boulton for arranging the show. Finally, thank you Division Five for your wonderful ABRA CADABRA!

It is always inspiring to see how children light up with a bit of magic in their day – hopefully their cheery drawings also bring a smile to yours.

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!
