Hi Family and Friends,
We can’t believe we are already on to our third week in beautiful Pond Inlet! Last week we were jam packed with lots of awesome lessons and after school activities with the junior high classes. We taught lessons on smoking, alcohol, marijuana, bullying, grief, puberty, contraceptives, sexually transmitted diseases and healthy relationships. We also had the opportunity to help out with job club and discuss our transition from high school to university with some of the high school students. We ran our usual after school activities in the gym on Thursday and got to play dodgeball and basketball with the students. On Friday we had a mixture of making mothers day crafts and sports. On Friday we also had the opportunity to join in with games night at the library and one of the students, Johnathan, taught us some drum dancing! Although we have a lot of practice to do we learned the raven, caribou, and polar bear. After, we got to check out a hockey game going on at the community hall with some of the older students and community members playing. We are extremely excited for the upcoming week as it is CTS week so we have a fun week planned with lots of cooperative games and leadership activities to do with the high school students along with our afterschool activities with the junior high students.
