Hume students show off survey

The Grade 2 class put together presentations about the waterfront for city council

A Hume class of Grade 2 students have some big ideas for Nelson’s waterfront.

Teacher Faye Wheeler’s 22 students presented the findings of a survey they did to city council Monday. The class surveyed over 200 people of all ages to come up with ideas for the old transfer station land near the water in Railtown.

The presentations included ideas such as a floating restaurant, a nature walk and a dog park. The students also worked with L.V. Rogers’ leadership students, retired city planner Dave Wahn and Kim Hammerich’s Grade 3/4 class who provided essays for each presentation.
