Hunting apprenticeship for local youth

For the ninth year in a row, a partnership between South Nation Conservation and Delta Waterfowl has resulted in a fully subscribed Youth Hunt. This year’s group included 10 youth; 7 boys and 3 girls. The program is all about introducing local, young people to the Hunter Apprenticeship Safety Program, which includes the Hunters Safety course, and the Canadian Firearms course. For nine years running, all 10 available spots have been filled by young people, aged 12-15, keen to learn about hunting regulations, safety, and ethics. SNC Property and Approvals Assistant II, Phil Duncan, said the event is designed to get young hunters off on the right foot so they grow up practicing good values every time they go out. This year’s program took place over three weekends in September with a final goose hunt in October. As long as licenses are in place, safety regulations are closely followed, and permission is obtained in advance, hunting is permitted on many SNC forested properties across the 4,384 km2 jurisdiction. — supplied photo

Good study results Trustees and staff for the Upper Canada District School Board (UCDSB) have reason to be pleased. The younger generations of Upper Canada district students are doing well according to the latest Education Quality and Accountability Office (EQAO) test results. UCDSB Superintendent Valerie Allen reported, during the Oct. 26 board meeting, that the combined overall EQAO results for Grades 3 and 6 classes in the district have increased by 17 per cent since the 2002-2003 school year. Primary reading scores have increased four per cent since the 2011-2012 term, both the junior reading and writing scores have increased seven per cent and six per cent since that same period.The EQAO results are matched against a combined provincial average for all of Ontario’s schools. – Gregg Chamberlain
