Canoeing at Walliwall

Both Primary 7 classes recently went to Walliwall to do some canoeing in open boats and take part in some 'trading challenges'. They learned about the original birch bark canoes and the tough lives of the 'Voyageurs' and the fur traders. Cooperation and good communication helped the crews work successfully in team activities.

Thanks to Richard and Ron from our outdoor education team for once again turning Walliwall into an outdoor classroom and providing a motivating and memorable learning experience.

Here is a short video of one of the classes at Walliwall preparing for and undertaking their trading and portaging challenge.
