Training workshop hopes for happily ever after ending

Mount Waddington Family Literacy Centre offers free, hands-on workshop to uncover budding Mother Geese

PORT HARDY—Ever been a fan of the nursery rhymes of Mother Goose? Now you have a chance to be the revered literary figure, thanks to a free, hands-on workshop this weekend hosted by the Mount Waddington Family Literacy Society and School District 85.

Workshops will be held in both Port McNeill and Port Hardy, offering young adults 17 and over a chance to learn the skills that could land them a job representing the Literacy Society in daycare centres, elementary school primary classrooms, libraries and large public events.

“It’s good for people who need part-time work, but need to get the training,” said Stephanie Nelson, program coordinator.

The first workshop will be held Saturday from 10:30 a.m. to 2 p.m. at the Old School in Port McNeill.

On Sunday, it will take place at Stepping Stones Daycare, located in the Robert School School building, from 10:30 a.m. to 2 p.m. Lunch is provided free both days.

Trained Mother Goose candidates will be qualified to travel with the Literacy Bus and interact with youngsters through book readings, songs, games and crafts, as well as distributing literacy materials to parents.

For information or to register, call Stephanie Nelson at 250-230-8777.
