Woodland walks for breakfast
Dildo school promotes healthy living
The students and staff of Woodland Elementary in Dildo promoted healthy eating with its walk to breakfast on Oct. 18.
With the teachers, including principal Lorraine Harnum, stopping traffic along Route 80 in the community, close to 200 students marched from the school to the end of Pumphouse Road and back again.
As students walked along the gravel road, teachers made sure to point any hazards, such as potholes or sharp branches.
With a chill in the air, students made sure to pull their hats extra tight and zip up their coats a little higher.
The annual Walk for Breakfast raises money for the school’s breakfast program in conjunction with the Kids Eat Smart Foundation.
Many schools in the Trinity Conception region take part in the walk.
This year’s walk raised some $2,187 for Woodland’s breakfast program from which students can receive a meal every day before school.
