Students at Silverdale Elementary took a trip to the Silverdale Wetlands on Friday (April 12) morning to release some salmon.

Rob Clark, principal at the school said the release went well.

“We had Judy Cathers sing a Sto:lo salmon honour song prior to our release,” he said.

Every student in the school participated in the release.

“Angie Bout our teacher/librarian has been taking care of the salmon over the past weeks in the library,” explained Clark.

Once old enough, the salmon were set free by the students.

“It was an absolutely fantastic experience for the kids as they have been actively involved in their (the salmon) lives from the beginning.”

Clark said the active involvement in outdoor and environmental activities is “the norm for Silverdale Elementary with our Forest Friday’s, Salmon Project, and Silverdale Elementary garden.”
