Meet St. Lawrence Academy!

St Lawrence 1

St. Lawrence Academy is a Montreal elementary school, where VSEAL has been holding workshops annually. Working largely with disadvantaged youths, our workshop hosts use poetry as a teaching tool to enhance reading and comprehension skills. The collaborative workshops show students how poetry can be a fun way to reflect and express themselves!

Poets Greg Santos and Daphne B recently held workshops with kindergarten and grade 2 students in boSt Lawrence 2th French and English classrooms. The hosts helped the students to write collaborative poems, using visual poetry and by brainstorming to experiment with language and metaphor.

Donate today to help VSEAL organize more literacy workshops like these through our ‘Poetry for Our Future!’ program, and to enter us to win $10,000! Every dollar supports literacy in our communities!
