It’s so gratifying to see the vision of working with students in nature come to fruition with the compilation of this book!

The Creatively United for the Planet Society, with students from Rockheights Middle School, will present The Township of Esquimalt, the municipal library and Esquimalt Parks & Recreation with a very special hardcover book at 11 am Thursday, January 15th at Highrock Park (entrance off Old Esquimalt Rd., at Lampson St.)
In the event of rain, the presentation will move to the Esquimalt Municipal Hall, 1229 Esquimalt Rd. The public is invited to attend.

The book, Stepping Into Nature, captures the spirit of community collaboration, volunteerism and documents how Rockheight’s students became more in touch with nature and the importance of greening their school through photography, video and the arts.

“The students had a big opportunity to get out and have a multi-faceted education in an outdoor classroom using the arts in nature thanks to their forward thinking Principal Maryanne Trofimuk and her capable staff and our volunteers”, says international award-winning, accredited Master Photographer, CRD EcoStar Community Leadership Winner and volunteer project coordinator, Frances Litman, whose photographs and writing capture the story, with a fine inclusion of student work ranging from writing, cartoons and artwork and photos.
