Door Decorating Contest

At the Nelson Mandala Park Public School, 4 classrooms participated in a door decorating, during Drug Awareness Week. Their mission was to decorate their classroom doors' with information based on their research about drugs. The students were also given the opportunity to learn about harmful drugs from an ex-drug addict and even an RCMP officer. The winning classroom received Eaton Centre gift certificates and all classes involved will have a pizza party, courtesy of the Daniels Corporation! There are no losers here. Each and every door was vibrant with art and information about good drugs and bad drugs. Well done guys!
