“Uphill both ways in a snowstorm.”
It’s a line used by many of our elders to describe the hardships they faced when they were younger.
Sadly, it’s close to the reality that many young students in Nain face when travelling to and from school.
Jacob Larkin is the Principal of Jens Haven Memorial School.
He says students of the Jens Haven Memorial Primary School will soon be able to eat their lunch at the school.
The school will give children who live over 0.8km away the option to stay over the lunch hour.
The option will allow students to avoid the lengthy walk they usually make during the lunch hour.
Larkin adds that a letter will be sent to the parents of the eligible children advising them of the new program.
