A Hiking We Will Go!

Our grade 7-9 students braved the wintry weather to get to the top of Jasper’s Sulphur Mountain.  A trek that was then rewarded by a nice dip in Miette Hotsprings!  The students were excellent leaders as they demonstrated what we believe here at Muir Lake School.  

  1. Excellence – The hike up past the “Big Rock” is difficult in good weather, however our students braved the conditions and made it anyway.  
    Excellence

  2. Respect & Integrity- As we headed back down the mountain, our students respected the environment and picked up stray pieces of garbage as well.  (garbage not left by us).  As well, each of the 3 busses were left in perfect condition upon rreturningto the school. The students were sure to thank the bus drivers and supervisors as well.  We are proud of the leadership shown by this group of students!

  3. Community – It wasn’t an easy hike up or down this year.  Students who were having a difficult time down the mountain were given assistance and encouragement from their peers.  As a result, all got down safely:).
