NHHS Students Receive Provincial Award

 
North Hastings High Students Receive Provincial Award
22 March 2007, Belleville, OntarioCMarch Break held a special surprise for students of North Hastings High=s Northern Outdoor Studies (NOS) class. On Friday, March 16, they were presented with the Ministry of Natural Resources Junior Conservation Award, at the Ontario Federation of Anglers and Hunters annual conference by Natural Resources Minister David Ramsay. The award is given to the youth group which is judged to have made the most progress and greatest contribution to conservation in the province of Ontario.
 
AThis is a great honour for North Hastings High School. Our Northern Outdoor Studies class has been around since September 1997 and each year it gains popularity,@ remarks teacher Glen Pomeroy. AOver the years we have added certifications and tweaked course content to ensure students are learning the skills that natural resources employers are looking for.@
 
The Northern Outdoor Studies class is a four credit program open to Grade 11 and 12 students. It prepares them for direct entry into the work force in selected sectors such as logging, resource and wildlife management, ecotourism and horticulture. Students study ecology, resource and forestry management, recreation services, community leadership and related topics. Graduates earn 14 certifications, including Ontario Hunter Education, Canadian Firearms Safety, the Fur Harvest/ Management and Conservation Course, Professional Chainsaw Operator and Canoe Tripping Level 1. Before finishing the program, students assemble their own portfolios highlighting the certifications, skills and knowledge gained through the course. Employers in the community are actively involved in curriculum development and work placement initiatives.
 
Pomeroy and colleague Barb Gillis are both NOS teachers. As part of the course activities, they teach students how to sharpen and use chainsaws, perform Lake Trout spawning surveys, age deer jaws, collect biological data and make plans for a five-day Algonquin Park canoe trip.
 
 
 
 
 
 
 
 
 
Northern Outdoor Studies Program 
Canadian Wildlife Federation's National Award
 
The Canadian Wildlife Federation (CWF) presented its annual Youth Conservation award to North Hastings High School’s Northern Outdoor Studies program.  This national award recognizes outstanding individuals and organizations who exemplify achievement in the field of natural resource conservation. Mr. Pomeroy was flown to Saskatoon to accept this award on behalf of the Northern Outdoor Studies Program at the Canadian Wildlife Federation’s Annual 2007 Banquet.
 
 
Northern Outdoor Studies Program Wins Second Provincial Award
 
Congratulations to North Hastings High School (NHHS) students in the Northern Outdoor Studies (NOS) program for receiving a provincial award for the second year in a row! The students were recognized for their impressive efforts to learn about and enhance Ontario fish and wildlife resources. 
 
On Friday, March 18, 2011, teachers Glen Pomeroy and Barb Gillis accompanied the students to the 83rd Ontario Federation of Anglers and Hunters (OFAH) Fish & Wildlife Conference in Mississauga. At the conference, the NHHS NOS program received provincial honours by being presented with the Junior Conservation Award by the Honourable Linda Jeffrey, Minister of Natural Resources.
 
"These young people are acquiring valuable skills in the outdoors that they can use for the rest of their lives," said Minister Jeffrey. "I commend the school and instructors for making this course available and applaud the young people who have taken part in it."
Principal Ken Dostaler echoed the Minister’s remarks, stating, "At NHHS, we are very proud of the success of our Northern Outdoor Studies program. Our students continue to be engaged in studies that reflect the culture and employment opportunities in North Hastings."
 
Nominations for the Ministry of Natural Resources Junior Conservation Award were submitted from across Ontario and reviewed by a panel of judges from the outdoor industry. The winners were selected for conservation activities completed during 2010.
 
 
 
Recognized Specialist High Skills Major
The natural resources course packages offered at North Hastings High School are now recognized by the Ministry of Education, as approved courses where students can graduate with a Specialist High Skills Major Secondary School Diploma in Forestry, or The Environment. The Specialist High Skills Major (SHSM) programs are designed to provide students with sector-recognized learning, skills and certifications that are advantageous for success in the workplace and/or post secondary education destinations, and are recognized by the SHSM diploma and student transcript.
 
 
Sir Sandford Fleming College, Lindsay Articulation Agreement
North Hastings High School has an articulation agreement with Sir Sandford Fleming College in Lindsay, Ontario. This agreement allows students who have completed certain natural resources courses at the high school, to enter directly into second semester of a natural resources program at the college, thereby saving students time and money in acquiring a post secondary diploma in the natural resources sector.

Lets Get N.E.R.D.Y.

altThe Northern Environmental Research Development Studies class has had a great start to the semester. We became certified with our Ice Rescue Training when we jumped into the chilly February waters, and are now able to navigate our way out of the bush with our Green Check G.P.S certification. The past few months, every Tuesday, we go out to the North Hastings Community Fish Hatchery and take inventory of the fish and assist in tank cleaning and feeding. Other students will go out to snow stations around the area and measure the depth of snow, to help determine how deer are coping. The class set up 40 duck boxes around various lakes and ponds located around Highlands Fish and Game Club. We got the pleasure of going out with a few biologists from neighboring MNR’s, and pulled collared black bears out of their dens, to weigh and measure them. It was an unbelievable experience to be able to handle these (sedated) bears! We went out White Lake fish hatchery to take in their amazing stock of fish and traveled to Maynooth, to Hockley Studios to see what taxidermy is all about. The N.E.R.D.S have been so lucky to experience everything they have so far and would like to thank everyone who helped us out. ‘

Northern Environmental Research And Development Studies NHHS

The Northern Environmental Research Program is a four credit program which will be offered to Grade 12 students, during the second semester. This program is designed for students who enjoy the outdoors and who may be interested in pursuing a post-secondary college or university career in natural resources, natural sciences, or environmental sciences.  Students will be involved in a wide variety of projects. Some of which will include data collection, analysis, and communication of information as part of on-going monitoring and scientific research with numerous local agencies and associations involved in natural resource management and environmental monitoring. Students will have opportunities to work with fish, wildlife, and forestry specialists and have input into the provincial data studies in environment and resource management at the college or university level, as well as experience and contacts for future jobs.

Successful completion of these credits, along with other designated courses, will earn the students a “Specialist High Skills Major in the Environment” seal on the Ontario Secondary School Diploma, as well as acknowledgement on the student’s transcript.

Successful completion of the Environmental Research Program with an average of 70% or greater, along with Math 4C, will also allow a student to enter directly into the second semester of any undergraduate program within the Sir Sandford Fleming Collage School of Natural Resources, through an articulation agreement, thus saving one semester of tuition, accommodation, and transportation.
