Bidding adieu to Harbour Grace Primary
The end of the 2012-13 school year last week also saw the permanent closure of Harbour Grace Primary as part of a reconfiguration of schools in the Harbour Grace/Carbonear/Victoria region. But, instead of sulking, the students and staff chose to celebrate their time at the school during the final weeks of the school year. On June 7, the school held a fun day for students. It was a day that featured fire truck rides, a bouncy castle, nail- and face-painting, and even a magician. The Compass was there for all of the activities.

Face-painting was also on the list for students. Here, Grade 3 student
