French Immersion students have fun studying fish cycles

French Immersion students at Nesika Elementary School have been participating in the Salmonids in the Classroom program.

French Immersion students in Madame Nicole Ratko’s Grade 1-3 class at Nesika Elementary School, pictured at Halloween with their fish poster behind them, have been participating in the Salmonids in the Classroom program provided by Scout Island Nature Centre and taught by Sue Hemphill (centre).

Participating classes are provided with their own tank and necessary equipment to raise Chinook fry from the eyed egg stage to the fry stage. In late spring the class will go to Scout Island to release the fish and participate in related activities. Scout Island Nature Centre provides this program for Fisheries and Oceans Canada.

The program is free for Kindergarten to Grade 12 students. Support is provided to the teacher and class through advice, help with tank maintenance and in-class lessons.
