I can honestly say I am genuinely jealous of these kids. When I went to school I never had an outdoor education class. I was stuck with the usual Math, English, and Spelling. I guarantee you this is a class I would have actually paid attention in.
The Aurora Middle school in Lac La Biche, Alberta is really doing something awesome. They offer a class in Outdoor Education, and their most recent class is getting a lot of attention.
The school posted photos of the students learning how to butcher a deer. The post has gone viral with over 25,000 shares. For the most part, the pictures of the kids actually learning valuable life skills have been well received. There were a few detracting comments, but those can be easily ignored.
Keep up the good work Mr. Lyons and bet this class with really stick with these kids.
