Lights in the sky

Nak’albun Elementary released paper lanterns into the night sky over Stuart Lake on Feb. 18.

Nak’albun Elementary released paper lanterns into the night sky over Stuart Lake on Feb. 18.

Lanterns decorated by students lit the sky, fuelled by nothing more than hot air and students, teachers and parents watched them sail out over Stuart Lake to loud exclamations of wonder. “It’s just something for the winter time,” said Michael Caldwell, a Nak’albun teacher who helped organize the event.

Caldwell said the school tries to organize something once a month and the winter offers the chance to do this when the nights are longer, so the younger students can still participate and be done at a reasonable time.

It was the third year the school had released lanterns over the lake, and there was a fire and hot dogs while students waited for the crowd to gather.
