The students made the donation of their large glass tile mosaic at 31 Division station on April 1.

The Sunny Days Mosaic Mural depicts the world in a fantastic way, wrote Visual Arts teacher Tania Pernar.

It represents the passage of time, as well as the evolution and development of the world God created, she wrote in the description of the art piece.

Officers at 31 Division have partnered with the school to create the mural and worked with the Toronto Azzurri Soccer Club on the creation of the new 5,000 square foot fieldhouse at the Keele Reservoir.

After 10 years of fundraising and work through many community supporters, including the 31 Division forKICKS organization and various sponsorship partners, an opening ceremony will be held on April 29 at the site located on the east side of Keele St., just south of Steeles Ave.

In 2007, the Toronto Azzurri Soccer Club signed a lease with the City of Toronto for a five acre parcel of land at the Keele Street Reservoir site.  The City of Toronto promised to build  a soccer field and our the Azzurri Club promised to build a community field house   

The Toronto Azzurri,  31 Division officers and the forKICKS organization will be using the facility for youth camps, athletics, education, gang reduction, financial literacy, career counselling and arts and music programs.

forKICKS  creates youth sports programs to keep kids active and create a positive influence on their lives.
