Holy Angels Catholic School - Learning from the Outside
Learning experiences in the outdoors are valuable tools to encourage students to engage in active and healthy activities and allow students to learn and
explore. Holy Angels Catholic School in Schreiber has been taking advantage
of the mild weather and learning through hands-on outdoor activities.
Mr. Fenton's Grade 7/8 class has been building a Quinzee. A Quinzee is a Canadian snow shelter made from a large pile of loose snow that is shaped then
hollowed. The class put a candle in it, and it raised the temperature 15 degrees over 4 hours, and they all went on top to see if it would hold their
weight, and it did.
Tapping into Experiential Learning funding, the Grade 7/8 class has fun trying out a
new winter sport. Mr. Fenton ordered 15 pairs of Snowfeet skis and poles. Snowfeet are mini skis that can be used on ski trails, sliding hills and
Using the new Snowfeet and traditional snowshoes, the class has explored the outdoors and tried out new trails throughout the community.
Miss Needham's Gr. 1/2 class have been creating some "A-maz-ing" work!
