The Hamilton-Wentworth Catholic District School Board is excited to be partnering with Telling Tales.
Telling Tales Literacy Festival is a fun-filled family event that brings together the best in Canadian authors, illustrators, musicians and storytellers to inspire, engage, entertain and teach. This year, the Festival is doing all this virtually.
Staff and students will find something to capture their imagination and connect them to stories based on three current and relevant themes. The School Festival takes place on September 22, 23 and 24, and features a 30-minute presentation each day that includes interviews, performances and workshops tailored to different ages and interests.
Information on each sessions can be accessed through the Telling Tales website
. The link will direct you to access a secure You Tube format that has been created specifically for this event. Presentations will be available any time after each day’s event has premiered.
In this third school session, Telling Your Story,

Students will be invited to sing a song with the Hamilton Children’s Choir and watch two original compositions from members of the Hamilton Youth Poets. They’ll also be able to participate storytelling improv and look out for the word clues for a chance to win a book!
Geared to students, aged 8-12, “Telling Your Story” will take place on Thursday, September 24, 2020 from 11:00 to 11:30 am.
