What’s Happening at Maupeltuewey Kina’matno’kuom

It has been a very busy month at Maupeltuewey Kina’matno’kuom! Students have been keeping active through a variety of sports teams and other school activities.

Boys and girls basketball and hockey teams have their schedules filled until March as they participate in the Cape Breton-Victoria Regional School league. Anyone who is interested in checking out their games can access a schedule at the school.

The grade 3 students have been taking part in a survival swimming program at the Northside community pool. The program is part of their integrated curriculum and has been taking place through the entire month of January. “At first, some of the students were a little nervous about the pool but now they are all quite comfortable with it,” said Sharon Bernard, Principal. “I would say that the program has been a real success!”

The grade 6-7 class has been busy planning for their annual Ottawa trip. They are currently selling tickets on an autographed Sidney Crosby jersey. Anyone who is interested in purchasing a ticket can contact the school for more information.

February is also jam packed with events including an introduction to Lacrosse, Robotics, a Chinese new year celebration and a continuation of all the sporting events from January, with volleyball set to start soon.
