Classes are back at West Country Outreach School and a new English teacher has come on board.

First-year teacher Melissa Marois has replaced Lothar Zemski. Marois, who lives near Crestomere, is teaching part-time at the Outreach School and also teaches at Eckville Elementary.

West Country Outreach School principal Ava Holliday said there are lots of exciting activities and events planned this year at the school.

Coming up on Sept. 29 and 30, the students will travel to Frontier Lodge in Nordegg for a field trip. During their two-day stay they will learn first aid and CPR while experiencing the beautiful country west of Rocky Mountain House.

This year the students will continue to volunteer at Parkland Manor and school representatives will continue to liaison with Rimbey’s interagency group.

The first parent council meeting will be held Sept. 16 at 6:30 p.m. at the school and all parents are welcome.

Holliday said the meetings help parents stay informed and learn more about new educational initiatives and how to become more involved in the educational process

West Country Outreach School is open to Grade 7 to 12 students. The alternative school follows the mandate of Alberta Education as an alternative School.

Students who attend the Outreach School are provided with additional education support and provided with life skills which may be needed to overcome personal barriers.

“This school division (Wolf Creek) is very supportive of the model and mandate of Outreach Education,” said Holliday.
