Rocks and nets and beavers, oh my! Students and staff at Woodlands School have been busy in the New Year.
Kananaskis in the Classroom brought a wonderful live presentation to the students in January, which taught them about wetlands and the diversity of their ecosystems. They even brought a large stuffed beaver, which was the talk of the school during that time. Special thank you to parent council for funding this opportunity for the students.
Despite the cold weather, kids were keeping warm with sport programs including netball, the rocks and rings curling program and dancing with Sound Kreations’ artist in residency. This year’s programming included learning dances from around the world. From Bollywood to line dancing and everything in between.
Keeping active isn’t always indoors in the winter, though. On February 7 all students had the chance to participate in Winter Walk Day. More than 800 organizations and 100,000 Albertans took part in this event last year in which people across Alberta are encourages to be active outdoors in the winter. We bundled up and joined the movement again in 2018.
