Warm spring weather in Naujaat meant that many community members were out and about wearing light jackets or even just t-shirts in mid-May! Sharon had fun presenting the Raise Your Voice: Self-Advocacy Workshop to many students in the beautiful new high school and playing the Rights Dice Game with the children in grades 3 to 6. Sharon thanks the Grade 8 students for teaching her how to quickly fold an RCYO Frisbee so it fits in the carrying pouch!
