Students with special needs in the West Region 4 family of schools recently participated in “Arts Alive – Where Everyone is Able,” a rich curriculum day of engaging arts experiences that tapped into students’ imaginations, creativity, strengths, and abilities! 

Students took part in hands-on workshops at Hollycrest MS led by professional artists and arts educators who have experience working with children with special needs. During their sessions the students were given opportunities to express themselves through dance, drama, music, storytelling, and visual arts. 

Highlights of the event included a music session with Juno and Grammy-nominated guitarist and singer Ken Whiteley, a lunch-time interactive drumming session with Njacko Backo, a brilliant percussionist from Cameroon, a “Dance through Creative Movement” presentation, and decorating rainsticks. 

“Everyone involved in this special event is very passionate about the Arts as an equalizer for all children,” said Hollycrest MS Principal Boris Stoikos.
