As the school year winds to a close, we are enjoying the kind of activities one associates with the end of a school year. We spent the day today with the grade 5/6 class from Shatford Memorial Elementary in Hubbards. Eight adult chaperones and 21 students slept in the school for two nights and ate their meals together in the Rec Centre. The students asked their teacher why they could not stay for a week!
This morning we had a wonderful presentation about lobstering from Katie and David Baker. This hands-on learning experience was a highlight of the day for all of us. After exploring Fossil Beach to collect sea glass and driftwood, the children all made sun-catchers as souvenirs of the visit. A visit to Wishing Stones Gallery ended a perfect day.
