Crescent School books at the TeacHaiti Library

By November 2, 2012Service Learning Projects

We were very excited to get these pictures from the new library at TeacHaiti. Last year, students from the Crescent School in Toronto, Canada, a day school for boys from grades 3 to 12, curated a collection of their favorite French storybooks to share with the students of TeacHaiti.

Crescent School was connected to TeacHaiti through the Rubicon Education Foundation’s Sister School Partnership Program. The project intersected with the Crescent School mission: Men of Character from Boys of Promise. Elizabeth Ford, the Lower School Resource Centre Teacher/Librarian, met with each class (there are two classes at each level from Grade 3 to 6) to connect the intent of the service-learning project back to the classroom.

It is easy to see that simple pleasures are best, and how much joy the gift of a book brings.
