CnToday, students returned after our first official 'SNOW DAY' in over 12 years. It is not typical for schools in Vancouver to be closed due to snow fall. This unique weather allowed us to use the snow to learn about Indigenous cultures and traditions. We learned about indigenous peoples' traditions today and learned how they are able to create igloos using only basic tools. We learned how difficult and challenging this can be without practice.
