Marine life in Roxboro NS!

We recently had Martina Butler from Heritage in schools visit our school to talk to us about Marine Environment. She spent three days in our school. On the first day she brought live samples from the ocean. We got to look at all different types of seaweed and sea creatures. There were crabs, sea urchins, sea kelp and a variety of other creatures.
She spent the other two days doing hour long workshops in each class. She showed a slide show on how pollution effects marine life. We saw some very upsetting pictures of some sea animals hurt or some that even died as a result of plastic in our oceans.
Martina reminded us how important it is to reuse and recycle so that our planet survives for future generations.

Skipping John!

On Wednesday 14th November John Burns visited our school also known as ‘Skippy John’. Each class got a half hour workshop. He showed us a variety of skipping techniques from easy to difficult and showed us all how to skip properly. We had a great day and learned how important skipping is for our fitness.Lots of students bought skipping ropes so we can now practice at home and in the yard at school.
