Continuing education students are giving back to the community with items they made in class.
The Alternative and Continuing Catholic Education Support Services’ Adventure Program is giving 45 bowls they made in a pottery class to the Timmins Empty Bowls Project. The ACCESS Adventure Program is made up of students between the ages of 17 and 24 who are looking to get their high school diploma is a more hands on and personalized way.
Teacher Laura Kelly says her class spent eight weeks learning how to make different pottery projects. Kelly says the class also heard about how the Empty Bowls Project brings awareness to food security in the community through and annual fundraiser and they wanted to help.
Student Kyler Goerk says giving back what they made is a very rewarding experience.
Kelly says the bowls made will be used at the project’s annual Empty Bowls fundraising lunch next spring.
