Abbeydale School participates in High Performance Rodeo


Grade 5 students from Abbeydale School participated in a performance of Haircuts by Children on January 30 and 31, 2016 as part of High Performance Rodeo.  Assuming the various roles required to run a successful business, in this case a hair salon, students learned the importance of teamwork, commitment and relationships in the presence of the work. The performance tests our willingness to trust the younger generation and creates a unique opportunity for different social groups to interact in an unexpected way.
Nevaeh and Kayley spoke of the experience on Global Morning News.


Read our story and see photos on the CBE website | Haircuts by Children requires a leap of faith.
