Here you will see various community based projects my students and myself have completed through Cobourg Tae Kwon Do.
EASTER CARDS FOR RESIDENCES AT LOCAL NURSING HOME – April 2012
The second community based project finished for the 2012 Black belt Grading here at Cobourg Tae Kwon Do was completed by Sarena Thompson. Sarena who is going for her first degree black belt in June is a nurse who works for one of the local nursing homes here in Cobourg. She asked our lil’ dragons to make up Easter cards for her residents. Sarena handed the cards out to the residents at her work this past Saturday and Sunday. The residents were so thankful and full of joy! Enjoy the pictures.
BIRD HOUSES FOR EASTERN BLUE BIRDS – April 2012
Each year our black belts that are grading must come up and do a community based project that will benefit our local, or global community in which we live in. The first one I want to write about is the project Liam Andrews is doing. Liam is grading for his 2nd Degree Black Belt in June.
– movie program (before the movie started Ismael was responsible of checking people at the door and making sure the people were signed up). While the movie was playing Ismael was responsible of helping out passing the lunch and then the snacks to the kids. (did 2.5hrs for that program).
-craft program. One called leaping leprechauns, one called collage art and another one called starry night painting. Each program was about 2.5hrs each. Ismael was again responsible to check people in. Help set up the tables before each craft program and after the craft was done to clean-up. Had to help younger children with their arts and handing out supplies for the crafts.
-the friday Ismael helped out with the customer appreciation day and had to give cake and juice to everybody coming in the library on that day (of course with the help of the program director.) Again he did about 2hrs at the door.
