We are happy to announce that Fish Camp for the 2022 school year was a success. For the week of March 14th to March 17th students from Kindergarten through to Grade 9 had the opportunity to learn about fish out on Winnifred Lake. While on these traditional fishing grounds, students participated in prayer, and learned about the various fish that inhabit the lake. Students also had the opportunity to learn about spawning periods, gutting fish, and had a dry fish demonstration from a local elder. Father R Perin would like to extend a heartfelt thank you to those involved in making Fish Camp a smashing success!
