The Town of Nain is busy preparing for their Summer Recreation Program.
Lisa Ivany is the Recreation Director.
She says 23 interviews were conducted for eight positions with recreation and one for CYN.
Ivany says it was a difficult task and that all candidates were excellent.
For CYN, Rachael Tuglavina was hired as Assistant.
Crystal Allen is the Recreation Coordinator for the Summer Program.
Allen will be joined by seven assistants.
Today is their first day of work; the students’ first task will be to help prepare for tomorrow’s Canada Day activities.
Ivany says the students will have to do Hi-5 training to work with the children of the Summer Program.
The training basically teaches the principles of health in child development.
She expects the Summer Program to start next Friday.
A date has not yet been set for registration.
Space is very limited, so registration will be on a first come first served basis.
There will be a fee of 10 dollars to cover the costs of running the program.
Ivany is pushing for more funding to hire more students.
The Summer Program will run for eight weeks.
