Brooks and area Hutterite Colonies


The Alberta Prairie Classroom on Wheels visited seven Hutterite Colonies in the Brooks area.

Parents and older siblings who were directly involved with childcare brought the pre-school children onto the bus. Despite the language barrier (children don’t learn English until they are in grade one), children enjoyed the activities and caregivers were very interested in the homemade crafts and activities for teaching literacy.

On hand to accept the Legacy Libraries for their schools were representatives from Bow City, Lathom, Fairville, Newell, Clearview, and Springview Colony Schools.
