Young people will participate in week-long, experience-based learning activity about Halifax Explosion

Summerside Intermediate School students Hailey Ahern and Jacob Gallant sit in front of a pile of rubble as characters Arma O’Flaherty and Stuart Oldfield. O’Flaherty and Oldfield were real children who lived in Halifax at the time of the Halifax Explosion, which took place 100 years ago. This week, students and teachers will embody the identity of people who lived in the Halifax area at the time of the explosion and participate in an experience-based learning activity that has turned the school into a replica of 1917 Halifax.
