A number of kids throughout North Leeward benefited from an extraordinary learning experience both in and out of the classroom during the two-week 4th Annual Summer Crash Academy Kids Workshop, at the Troumaca Ontario Secondary School.
The workshop provided a fun and unique experience with an exceptional opportunity to explore the outdoors through adventurous hiking expedition, tours and sporting activities. Children were actively involved in creative arts, information technology, Spanish, mathematics and reading in a well-stimulated and fun learning environment. They got the opportunity to discover new interests, create new memories and make lifelong friendships.
In her remarks at the closing ceremony, on Aug. 23, founder of the workshop Jolene Lewis expressed thanks to the business community for their continued support in making the workshop possible. She also thanked the parents for making their children available to partake of the knowledge shared in the programme.
“Parents are the key component to any drive for a child’s advancement. You should therefore become more involved in your child’s educational development. Ensure that all of your child’s spare time is not just reduced to video games, using social media, television or playing with friends; but time should be spend on improving their weak areas and reading,” Lewis emphasized.
A parent, Velda Hooper, believes that the workshop is an excellent initiative and more parents should get their children involved.
“At the workshop my daughter was introduced to Spanish and I was really impressed with what she had learnt,” Hooper said.
Summer Crash Academy kids workshop has swiftly become a much anticipated summer camp during the lengthy summer break. The workshop caters for 100 children annually and was held under the theme “Continued Advancement Through Remedial Training”.
