Students from St. Joseph’s school took the opportunity to celebrate water on Monday.

Students took part in activities both at school and Van Horne Landing including crepe making, curling, dancing, snow shoeing and ice fishing.

Grade 7/8 French immersion teacher Lynn Konkle said the idea is to look at the importance of water and the many uses we have for the essential liquid.

 “We’ve been doing the Great Canadian Water Challenge since the beginning of the year,” said Konkle. “They’ve had three challenges; the first two were talking about themselves and their relationship with water. This last one is a water celebration.”

The grade 7/8 students lead the stations while younger students participated in the activities.
