New Interpretive Walk a Take Me Outside Activity

Grade 11 students with Mrs. Jennifer Underhill 
at the Village of Blackville Park. 
There were many Take Me Outside activities at Blackville School this week. 

One activity included the new Interpretative Information Walk at the Village of Blackville Park.

Through the walk, the students learned new historical information about the Miramichi River. They also learned about the value of the Atlantic Salmon and the original lumber mills in the Blackville community.

The Take Me Outside Challenge is an annual event. The organization "believes in a future where spending time outside learning, playing and exploring is a regular and significant part of every student's day." 

The non-profit organization works in collaboration with other organizations, school districts and individuals to encourage children and youth to spend more time outside through various projects and initiatives.

The Anglophone North School District encourages teachers, staff and students to participate in the annual challenge.
