391 like outdoor school

Work continues on a proposal for an outdoor learning school in the North Okanagan Shuswap school district.

At a school board meeting in Armstrong last week, the district's director of instruction Carl Cooper said so far 1,003 people had filled out an online survey, with 391 people indicating an interest in signing their child up for a outdoor learning program in 2018.

The school would be located at South Canoe Elementary.

More than 125 people attended at parents meeting at Salmon Arm Secondary on Nov. 7th and intent to register forms were completed for 106 students. Eighty-three of the children were in kindergarten through grade five, Cooper said.

A proposal to move forward with the outdoor learning school is expected to come to the December board meeting.

School District 83's official trustee Mike McKay praised organizers.

"These folks are passionate and committed to making this something special," McKay said.
