Starting January 27 through until February 9th the EWG Middle School will play host to the Wood Chuck. Through the Department of Wellness, Culture and Sports Arts Development Branch an application was approved to have Chuck Bernard come into EWG and work with the students to develop their own personal carvings with a cultural theme. Each student in grades 6-8 will receive two hours of instruction and have the opportunity to use carving tools to create their own design. On Jan. 27th and 28th the woodcarver will be set up in the Cultural Center displaying his creations and carving.
In 2005, the Wellness Branch (GNB Department of Wellness, Culture and Sport) partnered with the Health and Education Research Group (HERG) to embark upon a multi-year initiative entitled the New Brunswick Student Wellness Survey (NBSWS), with the cooperation of the Francophone and Anglophone sectors of the Department of Education. The NB Student Wellness Survey is a key project of the NB Wellness Strategy: Live well, be well, and is conducted with students in Grades 4 - 12 and parents of students in Kindergarten to Grade 5.
