Celebrating back-to-school with fun kids, games and conversation
A recap of the latest episode of CCFC’s Rise and Shine Facebook Live series
By Niko Moniz, facilities services coordinator & Rise and Shine host
Have you ever wondered exactly what Christian Children’s Fund of Canada does and how we do it? Rise and Shine will answer those questions.
The fifth episode of the monthly Facebook Live series recently aired with a focus on education. Here is what you missed — read about it or watch it above.
Back-to-school bliss (watch at 00:40 minutes)
We chatted with three students who were extremely excited to go back to school. They told us why they were looking forward to returning to class and even shared helpful tips for their peers.
Small Voices Big Dreams (watch at 05:01 minutes)
Isabella, one of our guests, participated in last year’s Small Voices, Big Dreams survey. She weighed in on how she responded to the survey questions, which were compared with children around the world.
Making learning fun (watch at 11:20 minutes)
Bonar Bell, CCFC’s communications manager, shared memories of his latest trip to India where he saw how creative learning centres are making a difference in children’s lives. At these centres, youth teach children how to learn in creative ways, rather than relying on memorization.
A short video about the creative learning centres followed Bonar’s interview.
Game time (watch at 20:53 minutes)
We brought back our three student guests, with their moms, to play a game children in India enjoy at creative learning centres. Who wins? Watch to find out.
In our next episode, Sept. 19, we’ll talk about how small actions can lead to big changes. We’ll also be shaking up the show’s format, so be sure to follow our Facebook page for the latest updates.
In the meantime, watch the complete video (above) from our last episode.
See you next time!
