February 2021 Note…Grd

During the months of January and February Junior High Mi’kmaw students will be participating in Outdoor Education activities.

We will be working on the following activities:
Outdoor Ice surface (weather permitting)
Trapping Unit (Rabbit snares)
Making a fire & Boiling the Kettle (New activity)

This past week our Grade 6 class caught a rabbit in their snares! Special thanks to Kelly Oliver for grasping the learning opportunity to share with our students about cleaning the rabbit. Jon Michael did a Rabbit Skinning presentation for our students. The students decided to gift the rabbit to our elder Mary Lou Bernard. The next day, elder Mary Lou, teacher Carol Howe and EA Norma Paul made a rabbit stew with traditional 4 cents. The grade 6 class had a feast in the kitchen.
