Too Cool for School? Not this school...

Reproductions spanning 5000 years
 of history and multiple cultures
Believe it or not, this is a set of artifact reproductions that is on it's way to a local elementary school.  Teachers at Beachy Cove Elementary School in Portugal Cove-St. Philips put together an order this spring for a set of museum quality artifact reproductions to use in programming with their students.  Although I don't have kids, I've got to know a few teachers and students in the St. John's area through classroom visits and the Open Minds program at The Rooms.  The parents, students, and teachers from Beachy Cove are consistently remarkable.  This K-6 school now has a collection of Newfoundland and Labrador artifact reproductions on par with this Province's national and provincial historic sites and museums.  I was very proud to receive this order and I hope the students enjoy working with these pieces as much as I enjoyed making them.
