Hamden Hall Country Day School invites children to enjoy a coastal encounter in the classroom with live sea creatures from Long Island Sound. “Under the Sea” is a hands-on educational program presented by Connecticut Coastal Classrooms on June 28, from 10-11:30am in the school’s Swain Library.
Children ages three to six will discover and experience marine wildlife at this complimentary program that is open to the public. Parents should accompany their children. Refreshments will be served.
Connecticut Coastal Classrooms is a division of Schooner Inc., a nonprofit organization dedicated to promoting environmental awareness. Schooner educators provide unique educational experiences in marine science, sailing, and the history of Long Island Sound and its watershed.
According to Hamden Hall admissions associate Katharine Harris, these types of educational programs and offerings correspond well with the school’s mission to meet the needs and interests of the community.
“We are pleased to make our campus available to provide educational experiences to children,” said Harris. “Hamden Hall often extends itself into the wider community with these sorts of fun, instructional programs.”
