Haida Gwaii (SD # 50) – Masset

From the Haida Gwaii project, run by Leighann Rodger, we have a nice collection of images!

As part of the school-wide outdoor education program, students receive paddle board instruction from Shelly, who is also SD#50 Human Resources Director and community volunteer:

The school wide program engages parents, members of the PAC, volunteers and other community members in joining the students. Today, 18 adults were present for the day, along with toddlers:
