While kids are off school this week for a winter break, it’s professional development week for teachers across Nunavut. “Teachers can choose an activity or do something to improve themselves professionally,” said Landry, a math teacher at Inuksuk. At the workshop, Eric McNair-Landry and Katherine Breen — who both travelled 1,000 kilomtres from Qikiqtarjuaq to Cape Dorset on kayaks this past summer — led the kayak-building workshop. The group will make five kayaks which will be given to the school for the students to use in the classroom, and on the water. (PHOTO BY DAVID MURPHY)
