Educators create during Northeastern Ontario Regional Arts Conference

Educators from Rainbow Schools and beyond took part in the Northeastern Ontario Regional Arts Conference (NORAC) in the new arts studios at Sudbury Secondary School on November 2, 2011. Participants gained practical strategies they could introduce in their classrooms to expose students to dance, drama, music, visual arts and media arts.
