MONTREAL, MAY 26, 2015 While parents and educators might very well have a sixth sense, students at Carlyle International School in T.M.R. will be working on enhancing their basic four as on Thursday, May 28 (11:30 am) the school will inaugurate their sensory room.

Carlyle International’s Sensory Room is specially designed to develop children’s senses: hearing, sight, touch and smell through lighting, music and objects. The room will also become a vital therapeutic tool for children with limited communication abilities.

“When using the sensory room, the students will enjoy a range of sensory experiences that can enhance their therapy, learning, and relaxation,” said Anna-Maria Borsellino, principal of Carlyle International School.

Support for the project came from the English Montreal School Board, the Kyres Family, as well as Julian Ramsay and his team from Sherwin-Williams.

This marks the second sensory room at the English Montreal School Board. Parkdale Elementary School in St. Laurent is home to the other.
