Intergenerational Programs
(Seniors and Students Enjoying Activities of Mutual Interest)
 

 The Intergenerational Program provides opportunities for CB55+ members and the school students to participate in activities of mutual interest.

 

Friday Intergenerational Activities

Now is your opportunity to volunteer for the Intergenerational Program coming up next month.  On four Fridays volunteers meet with students from the school and enjoy forty minutes together over the lunch time recess from 11:10 to 11:50.  Activities offered this spring will include cooking, board games, lego, knitting and beading.  If you would be interested in volunteering for this delightful four-week program please contact Pat Ball at pball@shaw.ca.

 

 

Support a Reader

We’ve started our third year of this very successful intergenerational program. At the moment we have 8 classes involved, with 16 full time volunteers and 7 fill in people.

We can always use more volunteers, so if you are interested in listening to a child read for half an hour once a week, helping and supporting them as needed, please contact Von Bishop for more information at 
vonandjane@shaw.ca or 250-477-6206.

 

 

 Intergenerational Math Club

Suitable for early risers – this program runs from 8:00 to 8:35 am.on Mondays, Wednesdays and Fridays in the school library.   Along with an Educational Assistant our volunteers play math-oriented games with small groups of students.  You probably recognize some of the games we play – Sorry and Snakes and Ladders for the younger students and games like Uno, Sleeping Queens and Querkle with the older children.  It’s a lot of fun!  CB55+ has donated several games to the program.

 

Please contact Sue Jergens at sjergens@hotmail.com or 250-479-2226 for further information.

Pickleball for Cordova Bay Elementary Students –  

 I am now seeking volunteers for Tuesday mornings, from 11:15 – 11:45 am., starting on April 9th and ending in mid-June.  These sessions will be available only to those students who have taken our Introductory training.  There would be a teacher present during these sessions and we would merely be supervising the games by helping to keep score and giving feedback on technique where needed.  Some time in setting up nets and equipment would be required as well as putting away equipment at the end.  We will train the students on these tasks so they can help. 

With a few more volunteers, I would like to reduce the commitment to only 2 or 3 sessions. If you can help out, please contact me by March 22nd.  When doing so, please indicate any dates that you would not be available.  I am hoping we will get enough volunteers so we can have a schedule where each volunteer would only be required for a small number of sessions . You are welcome to contact me at 250-477-5066 if you have any questions.

 

Please help support our intergenerational programs by volunteering to help.  It is not a lot of time and you will reap many rewards and find the children delightful and grateful.
