From April through late June this year, Mme. Kori Nagle’s Grade 6 French Immersion students built their own vision of a resilient community from the ground up, piece by piece. Their finished model featured a water filtration system, rainwater barrels, solar-powered buildings and vehicles, electric vehicle charging stations, hospital and wellness centre, animal shelter, bike & walking path along the river, farmers’ market, recycling/repurposing/composting centre, rec centre, arts & music performance space, public bathrooms — and much more!
This project was a collaboration between the students, Mme. Nagle and local artist Avery Ascher.

The Pas is new home

Once upon a time, there lived a wonderful boy named Dhzhyvon who lived in a city named Kyiv, Ukraine. Then in 2021 Dhyzhyvon moved with his parents and little sister Adelina, to a new town named The Pas, in a new country named Canada. Everything in The Pas was different - even the language everyone spoke!
Dhzhyvon worked hard to learn English, and he was a great help to his parents and teachers. When war shortly broke out in Ukraine, Dhzhyvon's grandparents, aunts, uncles, and cousins lived in Smela, in the Cherkasy region (and they still do to this day).

The Sam Waller Museum has partnered with On This Spot to launch an exciting new tool that allows people to explore the history of The Pas in an exciting new way. The launch of this coverage right before the summer provides the perfect opportunity for people to get outside and engage with the town's story.
Those who download this free app will be able to view over 100 carefully mapped out and restaged historic photos of The Pas.

Local Teacher Publishes Children's Book

Smiling over a cup of coffee, Aimee Greene, shared her story of how she recently published a children’s book.

Greene, a local Grade 3 teacher, knew she always wanted to write a book and now she can officially call herself a children’s author with the publishing of her first book the Adventures of Jake; A Skydiving Adventure.

Greene is the mother to 12-year-old Jake and it was her ongoing adventures with her son that ultimately inspired her to write the book. “I had the idea a long time ago that I wanted to write a book and I wanted it to be about Jake,” Greene said.
