Some important dates to remember for the NHL 120 course this Fall: Wed, Oct. 12 - Protein QuizFri, Oct. 14 - Protein Assignments due We will be starting our Lipids unit Tue, Oct. 11th.
Just a reminder to the OP students that they need to bring their $50 to me ASAP for the annual trip to Fundy taking place next weekend.  This money will cover the cost of kayaking and park pass for the duration of the trip.  If you have any questions contact Mr. Woodburn at 523-7163 or email at   Check out some photos of the trip in my image gallery.  
My OP students could not have asked for a better day on the challenge course.  Of course we got completely burnt due to the lack of sun screen, but all in all the students had a great time.  The day started with climbing the outside elements (Catwalk, Swinging log, Rickety bridge, Spinderella, Burma bridge, Log-drivers waltz & Multi-vine.  Each student was able to take part in the climb and belaying team in some way which added to the team building experience.  Later in the day we tackled the "Team all aboard"...a 2x2 foot platform on a 35 foot pole that 4 climbers must stand on and then hold themselves by leaning out over the edge!  This proved to be a great way to finish off the day. Special thanks to Eddie Pinder & Paul MacKinnon who were able to take time out of their weekend to help us out.  Check out the photo gallery for some pictures of the day.

My OP students have been climbing the walls waiting for better we are getting ready for the big challenge course at MVHS.  The students will be leaving BLMS on May 2, at 8:30am and will return around 7:30pm.  Students are reminded that they must wear sneakers or closed-toed shoes...NO SANDALS!  Students also must bring a bag lunch and money for supper as we will be stopping to eat before returning home.  If you have any questions call Mr. Woodburn at 523-7163, or email at Students have been busy tying knots, adjusting helmets & harnesses and locking their carabiners in place for the big climb.  Most of them feel that they are ready, but nothing will prepare them when they walk up to the 60ft structure and see it first hand.  You can see pictures of our prusik climbing & belaying in the picture gallery.

The OP students have been in the great outdoors...well it is in the course title!!!  First we strapped on the snowshoes and hiked around the local trails.  The Annual Snowshoe Field Hockey Tournament proved to be a blast once again.  We are now cross country skiing and trying not to fall down.  The little hill behind the school was quite a challenge, but for the most part everyone made it down onto the river for a great ski.  We are still waiting for that big snow fall and we will start making our quinzees for our overnight exercise next week.
