Students can split into groups to work on what they wish. I'll rotate through the class and give individual assistance to each student and/or lead form practice, depending on what the interests are.

Location: St Stanislaus School tarmac. Starting at the Greenfield Community Hall parking lot 3803 114 St, walk up the sidewalk between the tennis courts, and St Stanislaus school, the tarmac is on the left hand side.
