The grade fives were in the Olympic spirit on Friday as they spent their morning cross country skiing at the Miramichi Cross Country Ski Club. The kids had a great time. We would like to thank Mr. Peter Gadd for making this special outing possible. Peter was instrumental in providing lessons and ski equipment and making this special day a memorable experience. A special thanks to Bunnie Dumpsey for navigating the kids through the Red Trail. Thanks again from the grade five students for a great time!

The grade five students of Gretna Green would like to thank Miramichi Police Sergeant, Merle Campbell, for a memorable tour of our very own Miramichi Police Station. We had the opportunity to get a first hand view of how the Miramichi Police Force work as a team to make our community a safer place. Constable Chadwick also reinforced how important it was for our students to continue making good choices and furthering our education. A definite highlight was to get a personal meeting with the latest addition to the force, K-9 Timo, along with handler Lori McEachern. Thanks again Sergeant Campb
