A Celebration of Play is sold out, thanks for all your support Calgary. Also a hugh thank you to our fabulous fundraising team, including Margot, Kelsey, Josh, Kevin, Breanne, Clare, Jessica, Tanya and Peter. We even had time for some netball on the front lawn – testing out the new hoop for tomorrow- way harder when it looks.

May 25th, 2014

Evelyn and John (Engineer) recently visited Teddie Primary School to check on the structures we built last summer. There are a few cracks to repair as the building has now settled and the new classrooms need a coat of paint. The hardest part was getting there:)
