P.A.R.T.Y.

Some of our grade 10 students visited the hospital to learn what P.A.R.T.Y stands for: Prevent Alcohol and Risk-Related Trauma in Youth.
 
Students learned that drinking and driving can be prevented. They toured the hospital trauma room and got to listen to nurses ‘work’ on a mock patient- Mac Bratosh. The nurses went through their A, B, C’s and how intrusive they need to be when people come into the ER and they are uncertain as to what they have ingested. They also met with the PH Ambulance paramedics who talked about the realities of car crashes.
 
Activities were organized to see how difficult it would be to button up your own shirt if you did not have hands and a video tape of a girl who was learning how to speak again after sustaining a head injury from an alcohol involving crash. Students could not understand the word list that she read out.
 
Constable MacDonald stressed that she would want students to call her to prevent drinking and driving crashes. The term accidents is not being used as drunk driving can be preventable.
 
Nurses, hospital staff and RCMP told the students that they are non-judgemental and want the students to be safe; that they wanted the students to know that any questions or concerns they had would be welcomed.

Canoe Trip

Ms. Kunstar’s Science 10 and Mr. Dyck’s Woodworking class had the opportunity to take out the School District’s 52’ canoe called Galtam (meaning ‘wide-face’). The classes were joined by Jim Jones and Mervyn Child.
With calm conditions, clear skies and smiling faces the students were treated to exploring the beaches, poking around tide pools, drifting over bull kelp beds (trying to catch the kelp crabs), watching seals swim under the canoe and investigate them and learning the rich history of the region, including local/traditional stories and traditional knowledge. This rich day of exploration and learning is one that they will not soon forget!IMG_0202 IMG_0277 IMG_0776 UNADJUSTEDNONRAW_thumb_22f9 UNADJUSTEDNONRAW_thumb_230a UNADJUSTEDNONRAW_thumb_2302 20180514_135857
