Canadian Geographic launches school based 'Adopt a Coast Guard ship' program

Coast Guard Base in Prince Rupert

Considering how Prince Rupert has close ties with the Canadian Coast Guard through their Seal Cove facility on the city's east side, a new project launched by Canadian Geographic Magainze would seem like a natural fit for both School District 52 and Annunciation School.

The program is designed for teachers of students from Grades 5-7 with the magazine in partnership with the Canadian Coast Guard inviting applications to adopt a Coast Guard vessel and follow it virtually as it takes to its tasks on the ocean.

Participating classrooms will be able to send weekly questions to the captain, take part in virtual hangouts with researchers and officers in training at the CCG College, and work their way through a one-of-a-kind activity booklet to document your learning journey. 

The program was recently highlighted on Canadian Georgraphic's Social media stream.

The program will run from January 23, 2023, to April 7, 2023, and is only offered to FOUR classes — so apply today and tell us why your students would love to take part in this opportunity!  

The successful applicants will be chosen by January 16, 2023

Teachers in Prince Rupert can learn more about the program and put their class in for consideration here.
