Dover’s Portsmouth Christian Academy opens StoryWalk
All are welcome to check out the educational nature trail that leads to a waterfront view of the Bellamy River
Portsmouth Christian Academy announces the addition of an Autumn StoryWalk® to its campus, open to the public.
Located just to the right of its Lower School building, PCA’s Autumn StoryWalk® is installed along the school’s McKeon Trail (Rabbit Trail), a nature trail that leads to a waterfront view of the Bellamy River, adjacent to PCA’s 50-acre campus and some of Dover’s wildlife preservation areas.
PCA staff and faculty explored ways for the school to contribute to the local Dover community. PCA Head of School Mike Runey said, “In this year of Covid—and especially now as we’re seeing cases increasing in our state and across the nation—we’re hearing that people are eager for opportunities to connect and engage in community. In a typical school year, we open to the public our theatre performances, speaker series, and special events. In the absence of those kinds of public events, our new StoryWalk® installment offers families a chance to engage in a fun activity with their children while also feeling confident that our outdoor, nature setting supports Covid health and safety measures.”
PCA’s librarians plan new StoryWalk installments during the 20-21 school year. Announcements of new installments will be made on the school’s website, www.pcaschool.org.
Visitors are welcome to check-in at the Lower School front desk during school hours or contact Praisye Yeo at firstname.lastname@example.org for more information.
