WE Are Silent- As part of our WE Schools initiatives we have chosen a day to be SILENT to see what it feels like to not have a voice. Each student will choose an issue to be silent for, such as : child soldiering , child poverty, no access to education or clean water. The day the students chose for this is WEDNESDAY, DECEMBER 20. From 8 am-12 pm we will not use our voices. I told the students they should practice, so ask them to be silent for some times.

We we are also putting out a challenge to any K-5 students in the District to do the same.

Turkey Bingo 🍗 next week!

Enjoy the week! Christmas is coming

Rural Routes podcast…the future of forestry

This past September, the Canadian Rural Revitalization Foundation held its 29th yearly conference and AGM in Nelson.

As part of the conference and also connected to  the Foundation, is a podcast program that collects stories,

interviews and information on various topics related to rural lifestyles.

This particular podcast was produced by the hosts while they were in the Kootenays for the conference. It includes an interview with Greg Lay and others, about where forestry is headed in Canada and elsewhere.   http://ruralroutespodcasts.com/?p=2047

The Rural Routes podcast series has been going for several years. You can access all previous podcasts (which cover a wide array of interesting topics related to rural living in Canada) here:   http://ruralroutespodcasts.com/

A perfect pasttime for a winter’s day…..just sit back and listen. Or go for a walk and listen…or do something else, while listening.  (!).
