New Conductive Education school for Canada

A newspaper in Canada reported on Friday that a new school, the  Purpose School of Conductive Learning, will open in the autumn in British Columbia.

It has taken 10 years to achieve this objective  and the head conductor will be Anne Wittig, a  UK trained conductor,  and it will also have a teacher and assistants :

The school will be parent-driven, and there will be a fee for services as well. Esau will be joined by Forliti, who will be the teacher, and Wittig, who will be the main conductor. The three will be joined by assistants as it’s required.

Well done to all concerned and I hope it will be a great success.

New conductive school announced

A new venture in British Columbia, Canada has been announced for the autumn. Around 12 children will participate in an elementary school program which will be run by the Purpose Society with Anne-Christiane Wittig, of Moving Ahead conductive consultancy.

Congratulations to them all and I wish them the best of luck with this!

Conductive Education on the television

Its that time of year for ‘feel good’ stories everywhere and I understand that the March of Dimes centre in Halifax, Nova Scotia has had a visit from Gobal news TV crew. A session with participants and conductor was videoed earlier this week and is expected to be broadcast over this weekend or early next week.

Apparently it will be on their website eventually at

Good news from Canada

I have just been told of something I would like to share with you as it it is such a positive story in these troubled times.On the front page of March of Dimes (Canada) website is a photo of a little boy, Justin Bower, standing up with a cheeky grin on his face.

Clicking on this leads you to a letter written to Beth Brydon, a conductor working for MOD in Halifax, Nova Scotia, thanking her for all her hard work. This is a small excerpt:

 

What you have done for our son in just two short weeks is nothing short of
miraculous. I’m still in shock that you have been able to transform him this
much! You are what we have been looking for since Justin was diagnosed almost
seven years ago. I’m not very religious, but I thank God for you!
