Outdoor Pursuits 110 is in full swing. The entire class of 19 graduating students did an excellent job building quinzees between Feb 20 and 24. Mother Nature played a nasty trick on us and unfortunately they did not survive the recent warm temperatures and rain. That did not stop us though as we were out cooking at our sites on Tuesday the 28th.
Jim Laws of Miramichi Electronics shows Kierrah and Neba some tricks to soldering a capacitors to computer motherboards as part of Mr. Mutch's Tech Support 110 class. For more photos please visit our image gallery.
In 2007, a Grade 9 student in Cambridge, N.S. was bullied by classmates for wearing a pink shirt to school. Two Grade 12 students, Travis Price and David Shepherd, rallied their friends to send a message to the bullies. The next day the school's halls were filled with students in pink t-shirts. This ignited the Pink Day campaign. This year Pink Shirt Day will be on February 22. On this day students and staff are asked to wear pink to show that they are taking a stand against bullying.
