The Saskatchewan Odyssey

The Saskatchewan Odyssey

The Saskatchewan Odyssey demonstrates for parents and children the fun of learning together and that literacy is more than reading and writing. A great way to engage the community; families, volunteers and staff to come together for fun and learning!

Explore our beautiful province with Family Literacy activities. Design a tourism ad for your own backyard! Skip your way across Saskatchewan! Branch out and create your own family tree! Flex your memory muscles with a Weird and Wonderful match game and so much more! This literacy event is a great opportunity to invite your community stakeholders to join in the fun, and can be customized to fit your organization’s goals.

“We parents work all day and I don’t get to see my son in school working and playing. I enjoyed seeing him interacting with his peers in the school environment. We loved the active games, and interacting with everyone in a group setting.”

– Parent, Brevoort Park School, Saskatoon
