Ladies of Literacy Lori and Carmelle

S.T.E.A.M. Family Literacy Fair 2015 – a huge success!

Thank you to all the presenters and volunteers who created a fair to remember!

Thank you to all the presenters and volunteers who created a fair to remember! Celebrating National Family Literacy Week – Science, Technology, Engineering, Math and Music, the Fair was held at BCE in early February.

Fabulous experiments with food and other substances were provided by “Za-nee Professor-types” Gail Moody, Liz Howard and Marie Doiron. Chris Rowan provided info on the impact of screen time. Ocean Dionne and Dwayne Paul were on stage. Lego Robotics was probably the most popular thanks to Geoff Mullins and his three assistants, Finn Carlson, Kyle Doiron and Haydn Mullins. Vying for best costume were Carmella Drygood and Lori Campbell. Janice Kyle explored sound with water and bottles to create music.. Balloon creatures were led by Sophie Mack and wonderful hats were made with Teresa McCausland.

Thanks also to Sunder Green, Darlene Rivers-Mack, Monique Miranda Tallio and Trudy Andy for their help. A big thank you to all the BCE staff for hosting this year’s event! Winning the best M.C. award was Rose Clark.

Delicious chili was available throughout prepared by the BCE Parent Group and enjoyed while watching the very messy cooking class stage performance of Mildred the III, Rainbow Lemon Tart and MaryAnn Joyful Dashes. (You had to be there!) Winners of completed activity books were Jessica Mack, Haydn Mullins, Ista Oud, Ocean Hall and Elsie Carlson. Congratulations everyone!
