Virtual School Visits

February 1, 2021

Shane has been visiting schools, virtually, during the pandemic. In just December 2020 and January 2021 alone, he had the opportunity to speak to students and teachers at Blenheim School in Drumbo, ON, St. Thomas Aquinas in Thunder Bay, ON, Little Current School in Little Current, ON, St. Leo’s Brooklin, ON, Eliot River School in Cornwall, PEI, Chemainus Secondary on Vancouver Island, Unionville Montessori in Unionville, ON, St. John Fisher Sr. School in Montreal, Southridge Elementary in Prince George, BC and Beacon Hill in Pointe Claire, Quebec. It’s certainly different from in-person appearances but just as much fun and just as worthwhile!

Thanks for visiting! Shane Peacock writes about unusual subjects, and his research methods have, at times, been out of the ordinary too. He has learned the arts of tight-rope walking, silent killing, trapeze flying, and sumo eating, all in the service of his art.
