NPSS Biology Hospital Visit

A story from the NPSS Science Department:

The Biology classes from NPSS are grateful to the FSJ Hospital and Northern Health for providing the opportunity to attend a well organized mini job shadow program in the hospital.  These students selected 5 out of 13 departments in the hospital that have made themselves available to take the students around for a behind the scenes tour.  To promote careers in the health sciences, the students learned of numerous careers in the hospital through touring around with these department leaders, showing them the ins and outs of the job.  The students networked and some made connections for future job shadowing, volunteering, and work experience.  It was a pleasure to see so many health care workers proudly sharing their careers that they love and exciting to see so much enthusiasm and interest from the students!​

Bat Houses – Project Partnership

Two Biology 11 classes from North Peace Secondary School, a Science class from Bert Bowes, and a Science class from Prespatou are constructing 50 maternity bat houses for the Bat Conservation Project in the Peace River area.  This is a project in partnership with the Forest Land and Natural Resources Operations (Ministry of the Environment), Charlie Lake Conservation Society and Ducks Unlimited.  The boxes the classes have created will be distributed to members of the community to provide a habitat for the bats while collecting data on the bats for the Ministry.  This is a unique and exciting opportunity for the students. Community volunteers will be sought out shortly to take the responsibility as a bat box caretaker.
