All grade 3, 4 and 5 students ventured off to East End arena for a morning of skating to celebrate the work they do as leaders at Wayoata School. Whether students were skating for the first time or were experienced skaters, they were all smiling. It was heartwarming to see students who have skated before spending their time helping nervous students who are new to Canada as they gingerly stepped onto the ice in skates for the very first time. This event would not be as successful without the help of volunteers. We would like to thank the parent volunteers who helped tie skates all morning. We would also like to thank Mrs. Drewry, a community volunteer, who helped organize and fit over 70 pairs of skates on students.
