A New Take on Outdoor Education


April 6, 2010 - In the spirit of the traditional April Fools prank, Mr. MacNeil’s grade 12 history class at St. Benedict Catholic Secondary School thought they would play an April Fool’s joke on their teacher by placing all the desks outside before he arrived for class. The tables quickly turned, however, as Mr. MacNeil was quick to turn the joke around on his pupils when, without missing a beat and to their surprise, he began to conduct his lesson outdoors. As the day was beautiful but still a bit chilly, the prank only lasted a few minutes before the students eagerly returned the desks back inside.
