School Team Highlight: Faucons K’átłl’odeeche from École Boréale

Les Faucons de K’átłl’odeeche is the name that our grade 3/4 class chose for themselves for the Walk to Tuk. It represents their school and their francophone heritage in the North (K’átłl’odeeche is the Dene word for Hay River). This is the first time the students are participating in the Walk to Tuk, and we hope that it will encourage them on the path of a life-long passion for staying active!

Most days the students would share how many minutes they walked, skied, or ran, etc. We would then calculate the total minutes, which was a great math exercise! It was also interesting to see where our team was on the map and learn more about the geography of the NWT.

What our class says about Walk to Tuk:

  • “It was fun! It was also kind of hard.”
  • “It was a good exercise and good for our body.”
  • “Can we do it again next year?”
