Plans have now been finalised for the Creative Workshop Series (CWS) at St Theresa’s Preparatory. This was done in a meeting on Monday, February 22 between principal Mrs Diane Taylor, art teacher Mr Earl Fyffe and OAaSIS Founder, Anthea McGibbon.
Assistant Project Director Melhanie Spence had been present at the introductory meeting with both Mr Fyffe and Ms McGibbon.
Although it is not a public school, and possesses teachers of dance, music and art, rest assured the series is very needed. Particularly as just the basics of the basics of basics is being shown to the students. So in the ‘sensitising phase of OAaSIS, we will bring the CWS to that school. After all, through OAaSIS we team together to empower the creative mind of today’s youth. Please see schedule below and sign your participation by March 29.
