Creekside in the World

Support for Blue Carbon Initiative: 

Paul Horgen at the Comox Valley Project Watershed Society is pictured receiving a cheque for $1,500 from Creekside Commons Community Services Society (represented by Pam Munroe, Tim Crossin and Don Munroe) for the Eel Grass project to sequester carbon in the Comox Estuary. This project while removing carbon from the atmosphere also restores our estuary and provides local employment. (Comox Valley Echo, Tuesday, January 10, 2012)

Creeksiders Help Make Saltwater Christmas Craft Fair a Success Story

They sang, they made crafts, cookies and jams, they helped at booths and craft activities. All this to support the new Waldorf inspired Saltwater School to raise funds while having a great time working and playing together. This is an annual event that promises to strengthen the links already forged between Creekside and Saltwater.

Nearby Saltwater School Open House a Resounding Success!

Courtenay Mayor Greg Phelps and Tin Town ‘mayor’ Tom Larson joined many Creeksiders, interested families and neighbours at the April 2011 open house for the new Saltwater School facility on Rosewall Crescent.

Mayor Phelps told Eric he wasn’t allowed to hold sharp objects J so Callie, as the oldest student, got to cut the ribbon at the ceremony. Children were treated to storytelling, a song circle and other activities while adults toured the building, examined renovation plans, enjoyed displays of student work and met teachers and board members.

Waldorf education embraces many of the same values as Creekside Commons.  The goal is to provide young people with the basis to develop into free, morally responsible and integrated individuals.
