Nak’albun Winter Olympics

The Fort St. James Winter Festival got kickstarted at Nak’albun Friday

LINEUP: Nicholas Prince

The Fort St. James Winter Festival got kickstarted at Nak’albun Friday as students slid, threw, jumped and raced during the Nak’albun Winter Olympics.

During a full day of events, students were put into groups and rotated throughout nearly a dozen relay stations testing their endurance and team work abilities. Fifteen minute intervals at each sport allowed the children to try hockey shot out, bean bag toss, snow shoe race, chariot relay and snow snake throw to name a few.

Hot bannock cooked over fire was also served with help from Caroline Bird and Winnie Sam from the Nak’azdli Health Centre.

One station that proved extra exciting was the teacher target. Soup cans, each labelled with a picture of a teacher, gave the kids a funny target to try and knock down as many as they could.
