Grade 8 Field Trip to Winterton Wooden Boat Museum

For the first time at MDJH, all grade 8 students will get the opportunity to travel to the Winterton Wooden Boat Museum. Students get to take part in a variety of hands on activities such as knot tying, planing wood, and using a pulley to hoist a boat. A visit to the museum gives students a glimpse of life in an outport community and they learn about the different types of boats used in the fishery, from a dory to a motor boat.
