Paul MacKinnon, outdoor education mentor from School District 16 visited Metepenagaig today. He worked with students in grades 5 and 6 using skateboards in the gym. This was a great learning experience for our students and great physical activity. A good time was had by all! Click on Image galleries to see the students in action.
