Students from kindergarten to Grade 4 were presented with brand-new summer backpacks donated by Northern Canada Mini Projects at Victor Sammurtok School in Chesterfield Inlet this past month. Teacher Ana Leishman also found the time to put the finishing touches on a beautiful mural in a hallway at the school.

  1. I am the coordinator of a virtual walk around the globe. 70 people logging miles every week. We find ourselves in your town this week. I can get a lot of information from google about your town but if you have anything personal to add I would appreciate it very much. I love the backpack giveaways. We do that at our church in Verona Pennsylvania USA. You can email. Thanks, Linda Kim
