OIMY @ SEEC for Term 1 of 2014

For Term 1, OIMY is teaming up with SEEC! SEEC is the Saturna Ecological Education Centre, a unique program in our district. Last year OIMY students travelled to Saturna to get a taste of what SEEC offers; this year we'll get a much more comprehensive experience.

OIMY students will travel to Saturna Island, where the SEEC high school students will pair up with our OIMY students to explore and experience ecological learning. The OIMY students will work through a process of developing leadership skills that can be applied to leading ecological learning activities on their home-islands. This year's program will consists of two back-to-back days with an overnight camping experience. Such a format will create the opportunity for rich place-based learning, integrating academic competencies, explorations, physical education, and significant social opportunities. The first session of this year's OIMY program will take place on Wednesday and Thursday, October 15 and 16, 2014. Here is a link to an outline of activities and the "what to bring list".
