Learning Clusters

Learning Clusters are fun and educational times for NSA students to meet their classes’ outcomes.  These are similar to Activity Days but usually occur once a week and run for three to eight weeks, depending on the event.  Examples of Clusters we have run include Rock Climbing, Indigenous Studies, Gymnastics, Baking, Art and Music Classes.

Workshops are similar to the Learning Clusters but only run for one day.  They may include things like First Aid, Hot Chocolate Charcuterie, Explosion Books or Craft Kit Days.
