Introducing Mystery Class #7
We are a combined group comprised of a grade two class and a grade six Class, and we attend school at Northshore Elementary near Corner Brook, Newfoundland, Canada.
The school has approximately 360 children from Kindergarten to grade six. Upon the completion of grade six we attend school at Templeton Collegiate which is located in a neighboring community called Gillams.
Last, But Not Least
We are nestled in the western part of the tenth province of Canada, called Newfoundland. It is referred to as the tenth Province because it was the last province to join the confederation of Canada in 1949. The Province was then led by premier Joseph R Smallwood.
We are very fortunate people to be living in such a wonderful Country, Province and Community. Given the small population and the close-net relationships of the people in our province, the crime rate is very low and the hospitality is very high.
If You Don't Like the Weather, Just Wait 5 Minutes
This year has been exceptionally good for snow, and we have received what we would
normally get during an average winter. This is great for the local Ski Hill, which
is one of the best slopes in the country. It is called Marble Mountain.
People in the area work as fishermen, loggers, at fish processing plants, at the paper mill in Corner Brook or in one of the many shops or restaurants also located in Corner Brook. Since Corner Brook is the main center on the west coast of the island, many of the government offices are located there and a lot of people in the area are employed with them.
