Grandparents can offer their skills, knowledge to schools

A group calling itself the Story Telling Elders is seeking new members to participate in a program of story-telling, art and cultural activities in School District 43's Strong Start programs.

Strong Start is a free, early-learning drop-in program for three-to-five-year olds and their caregivers located in several schools.

Seniors interested in volunteering to participate in the program by sharing their knowledge of traditions and culture with students are encouraged to contact the Story Telling Elders, whose membership comes from a variety of Aboriginal, non-Aboriginal and Metis backgrounds.
