Ladder tour session

In November, we welcomed youth from the Ladder Step Up program to explore ways to learn differently and engage with our education and training programs at CCG! 

It was amazing to see the enthusiasm as these young minds engaged with our trainers, exploring different learning methods and gaining hands-on experiences by planting and picking fruit, immersing themselves in discovering new possibilities to broaden their skill sets. 

The Ladder Step-up program team and everyone involved made this a day of success!

Sensory space target achieved

We’ve reached the target for phase 1 of our sensory space with phase 2 funding being sort by potential sponsors. Thanks to many donors who responded to our 200 (people donating) x $20 campaign in 2023. 

The sensory space will provide an outdoor space that will provide students an additional resource in times of anxiety or distress to: 

  • Have a safe space to retreat 
  • Recover and regain composure 
  • Self-regulate and self-soothe 
  • Connect with nature 
  • Engage in different activities  

Keep an eye out for updates on the developments of this space.
