In order to increase visibiliity of the Capilano & Fulton Place Schools, why not run boating optional classes & classes for credit at the two schools. The idea is a lock because the kids can learn about boating on the river & all aspects of boating safety. They can learn about how to repair boats, wear lifejackets & how to perform first aid on a boat if a party is injured or if the boat should capsize.
The idea could essentially be run both in the gymnasium & on the grasss of the schools themselves. It makes sense because of the close proximity of the two schools to the North Saskatchewan River & therefore by extension, other tributaries.
Happy St. Patrick's Day David To You & Your Good Family,
