What could be more fun than teaching students who find joy in the experience? We have the pleasure of being part of the Stu”ate Lelum Secondary School co-operative education program. Today we had the added fortune of having our favourite photographer there when three of the girls came for their pottery class. Edward McCrea, Ladysmith Photography, says he loves taking candid shots, and I think the images we got from him today sure prove that point. I hope they make you smile too.

The student pictured working on the potter’s wheel has only been taking classes for a brief time, but she’s showing remarkable aptitude, and clearly improving with every class.

Our pride shows as we watch Vicki demonstrating to (teaching) our new student Celine. Vicki teases us that she’ll have a studio some day and she’ll be even better than us.

Meanwhile, as Louise concentrates on decorating with slip, our photographer’s wonderful dog, Leo, is closely watching her every move. It’s a relaxed and peaceful atmosphere, and we’re always happy to work with these amazing students who attend a First Nations School with a truly great goal:”To provide students with a safe and welcoming environment, develop the skills students need for success after graduation and honour the rich traditions of First Nations Culture.” It’s a goal we’re proud to share with the Stz’uminus First Nations here in Ladysmith.
