ESL Students ... Gone Fishing!

The students got to experience fishing in Canada. We had a short hike and fished in a nearby lake. Unfortunately we didn’t catch any fish because it was such a hot day. Hopefully some enjoyed it enough to try again during the regular school year when the fishing is better. We also played on the waterslide and drove mini race cars.

The students have been making friends, studying hard and visiting a variety of Nova Scotia’s attractions. We enjoyed an educational walking tour of Oak Island, had a  shopping trip at Mic Mac Mall, went swimming and fishing at Aylesford Lake, and raced around the track at the Windsor Playland. The TOEFL Junior Assessment has been completed and results should be in soon. Students will perform in a variety show this afternoon and classes will conclude tomorrow. We are heading back to Oak Island for a few days and will have the pleasure of sailing on the Bluenose II, ocean kayaking off Lunenburg and touring the Ovens Provincial Park.
