“During the school here, the students interact really well here. Everybody gets along, everybody makes friends, we don’t see any fighting amongst the students. I don’t know what happens in PFC but in the school everyone is laughing and joking,” he said.
“ I have a second generation of kids here that I taught and now they have their kids here. I even have parents phone me up like past students saying you have my child in there. Look after them. That is what I find amazing,”
Christie Skunk is a grade 10 student from Mishkeegoga mang and has been at Pelican Falls for a year.
