Getting Back to the Great Outdoors

Posted: October 31, 2018

We would like to send out a great big thank you to all students, teachers, administrators and staff members who recently participated in our very first ASD-N Take Me Outside Day Challenge. We were overwhelmed by the support shown for this initiative from K-12 classes across the district. In all we had 32 schools registered, including First Nation schools and Alternative Education sites, with hundreds of photos and videos submitted and/or posted online.

Please be sure to check out our Image Gallery containing several of the photos from this highly successful event at the following link:

Also here are a few samples of videos we received from schools:
