Sharing our gifts with our communities!

This week, Project Sunset students had the chance to get creative, both at the craft table, and in the kitchen! We had the chance to spend the day at the Emo/Lavallee Arena, creating holiday decorations and baking and decorating cookies for the holidays, as well. Neen Martin and Tess Coish helped everyone explore their creative side, and we discovered many, many hidden talents among us! What a great day we had, and a chance to spend time together and work together as a community.

And while we had a chance to work as the Sunset community, we also had the opportunity to share these gifts with our home communities, as well. We had a reflection on how we could support those in our community who might appreciate having their day brightened by our work, and the kids were challenged to think about how we could share our gifts with others. And while everyone had a chance to take some of their creations home, everyone agreed to share a portion of what they made with others.

When asked, who we could share our holiday baking with, the kids got creative again; they thought that some of the elderly in our community would appreciate the baking (Queen Street Manor in Emo), but also wanted to share with those who supported them, as well. We also made care baskets of cookies for the teachers at Crossroads School, the staff at the Fort Frances OPP detachment, and the staff at the Naicatchewenin First Nation band office, and delivered the gifts to all of the locations. It was inspiring to see the kids acknowledging and appreciating the support of the community around them, and wanting to give thanks for that support; just another way that we are learning to become more connected to the people around us.

More of Sunset students’ voices — with the Fort Frances Times!

The opportunities for Project Sunset to tell their stories continued, as the Fort Frances Times published a second feature on the project, with articles and comments from the students! Many thanks to our community partners who have supported and encouraged this work by the students, and helped them to learn new skills as they highlighted their experiences in the program. Great job everyone – more exciting things to come!project-sunset-page-2-poster
