The Nelson Rural School Garden Club conitnues to grow!
This year, almost every class in our school did some form of growing inside, whether they used used Click and Grow smart gardens, built their own grow light towers and planted seedlings that were placed in window sills.
We wrap things that are important to us in red cloth; so here we symbolize 215 young souls wrapped in red. At Nelson Rural we acknowledge Canada’s wrong-doing and pledge to do better. We are honouring those children who did not return home from residential school.
Each year, on September 30th, ASD-N staff and students are invited to participate in “Orange Shirt Day”. This day is designed to educate and bring awareness to Canadians about the Canadian Indian residential school system that existed in our country and the impact it has had on Indigenous Communities and people for more than a century.
Many students at Nelson lucked out and caught a fish today! It was a great day to cast a rod and enjoy the beautiful weather! Nelson students get to fish during their physical education period this time of year and it is a great activity for all students to take part in while enjoying the beautiful Miramichi river!
