Stu­dents at Maxville Pub­lic School will en­joy ev­ery­thing from yoga to snow­shoe­ing thanks to a $10,000 grant from the Royal Bank of Canada.

The school used the money to sup­port a snow­shoe­ing pro­gram which be­gan this month at the Sum­mer­stown Trails. Next month, stu­dents will en­joy curl­ing at the Maxville and District Curl­ing Club and skat­ing at the Maxville Sports Com­plex.

The funds will be used to pur­chase a floor-curl­ing set to in­struct stu­dents in the gym on proper tech­nique be­fore hit­ting the curl­ing ice.
