Chevron Open Minds Program

Congratulations to Mme Nixon’s Grade 5 class who participated in the Chevron Open Minds program at The Rooms. Through this grant, they had the opportunity to move their classroom to The Rooms for the week of January 22-26 and participate in different activities so they could learn about Newfoundland communities from the past. They worked with the staff at The Rooms and went behind the scenes to see artifacts and Rooms that the public doesn’t normally get an opportunity to see. They also worked with local artists to create art and make their own Inuit tools (kavik and ulu knives). What a fabulous experience and they were awesome ambassadors to our school!  Written by Mme Nixon.
