Bid­ding adieu to Har­bour Grace Pri­mary

The Compass - - SPORTS - PHO­TOS AND TEXT BY NICHOLASMERCER THE COM­PASS

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.

Kinder­garten stu­dents Alyssa Verge (left) and Avery White get their bounce on in the bouncy cas­tle.

Stu­dents Ciera MacEwen (left), Leah Baker (cen­tre) and Kiera Haynes wave their hands over their head and

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

Emma Ped­dle gets some beau­ti­fi­ca­tion treat­ment on her nails. Emma is

a Grade 3 stu­dent at the school.

Grade 1 stu­dent Ma­son Drover has the dif­fi­cult de­ci­sion of choos­ing which mug he wants to throw the tiny rub­ber ball into.
