Jaanimmarik School

Visit From Astronaut David St-Jacques

Astronaut ISA 1993
Astronaut David St-Jacques came to our school to make a presentation on his personal journey since joining the Canadian Space Program.
 
Prior to joining the Canadian Space Program, he was a medical doctor and the Co-chief of Medicine at Inuulitsivik Health Centre in Puvirnituq, Nunavik, Canada.
 
He visited our students, made a presentation, and answered the student's questions. After this, he had time to meet individually with interested students and was even interviewed by one of our students for a student-made film.

Student Snow Sculptures

During the first week of March, the students of our school were lucky enough to experience creating snow sculptures. Throughout the course of the week, master carver M. Jacques Baril, introduced the students to the art of creating snow sculptures.  Each student team had to make a cylinder of pressed snow. Once this was done, the group had to imagine a figure that could be created using the snow cylinder as a base. This new experience has stimulated the student’s interest in 3D imaging. These works of art, although they were ephemeral, showed the talent and creativity of our students.

Members of Our Girls Project Class in George River

soap trip

Last week was very special because some of the members of our Girls Projects class realized a project that they initiated last December. Members of our Girls Project class visited Kangiqsualujjuaq’s school where they shared their projects and ideas with George River’s IPL class. During this 2 day trip, two student representatives and their teacher hosted a workshop on soap making. This experience really fascinated the teachers and students of George River. The students have now returned to Kuujjuaq with lots of energy and souvenirs!

Jaanimmarik secondary students celebrated the end of second term with a day of Inuit games in the gym on Thursday, February 26. Girls and boys from grade 7 to secondary 5 competed in events such as one-foot high kick, triple jump, kneel jump, Muskox pull, stick pull, head pull, and arm pull. The students challenged each other and themselves for their personal bests while their classmates and teachers cheered them on. Many of the students are training with hopes of representing Team Nunavik in the Arctic Winter Games in Greenland in 2016.
