What makes a community?
Participants were prompted with this question when deciding what to create out of clay. People, pets, homes and playgrounds were some popular choices for children at Sir Adam Beck School. One grade 5 student reflected that, “a community needs acceptance and cooperation so it can be happy and successful”.
