2023 SK Regional Braille Challenge
JUNE 7, 2023 — On March 2, 2023, the Program for Students with Visual Impairments (PSVI) at Arcola Community School hosted the inaugural Regional Braille Challenge for Saskatchewan. Pamela Tarr, Qualified Teacher of Students who are Blind or Visually Impaired (QTVI), did an amazing job of researching, promoting and organizing this event.
Students from Greater Saskatoon Catholic Schools and Arcola Community School were thrilled to participate in the preliminary challenge of the international competition hosted by The Braille Institute of America, Inc. (Los Angeles, California). Students participated in a variety of timed skills challenges, including reading comprehension, spelling, speed and accuracy, proofreading, and charts and graphs.
