Earth Rangers' visit to Nelson Rural School was a big success. Mark and Josh brought our animal friends: Daisy (skunk), Maverik (American Kestrel), Kookatoo (Kookaburra), and Hook (Red-tailed Hawk) to enducate us on the importance of helping to protect animals in the wild. The Kookaburra entertained us with its laugh, while Marverik and Hook showed off their flying skills above our heads. It was a great presentation and they encourage all of us to become Earth Rangers. Please take a look at the brochure sent home for more information on this program.
The middle school hockey players of Nelson Rural played in the annual Winter Classic hockey game on Friday, Feb. 16 at the LBA. Fast skating, good laughs, and an overall good time was had by all the boys and girls who played. Many goals were scored, quite a few on Mr. Bosma, as students enjoyed snapping pucks at their Language Arts teacher. A huge thank you to Mr. Keating for organizing the event again this year, and for Mr. Murphy for helping on the ice and even showing some of his old hockey skills.
