On February 11, NAEC students and staff travelled to Calabogie Peaks for a ski trip. A total of 59 students from grades 7-12 attended the trip. For the first part of the day, students partook in skiing lessons and later advanced to other hills.
High school student Nathan Baker was thrilled to see optimism from his peers. “Everybody was just so happy and excited about this trip. It was a good thing because the more people that are happy, the more positive the environment is”.
Grade 9 student Nathan Reid also had positive things to say. “It was difficult to learn at first, but once you got the hang of it, it was fun and easy to do”.
Grade 10 student Cassandra Parks-Delyea said that the trip was a “fun experience to get to learn a new skill”.
Despite the cold weather, everyone who was a part of the ski trip had a great experience. NAEC will be returning to Calabogie on March 4 and are looking forward to planning more ski trips next year.
