Deanery Days at School

On March 14th, The Deanery Project came to Duncan MacMillan School, where ten of our Resource Team members taught interactive workshops to students in grades 7-9. Each student chose three workshops to attend throughout the day, giving them the chance to experience some of The Deanery Project’s signature¬†traditional skills and arts workshops without even missing a day of school. Live music and hands-on learning made for lots of fun and tied back into multiple curriculum goals across a wide¬† range of subjects.

A big THANK YOU to all the teachers, support staff and students at Duncan MacMillan School for helping make this pilot project such a grand success.  Thanks especially to Molly Gammon (School Principal) who believed in the project from the start and brought all the pieces together.
