The new lunch program launched at the Jens Haven Memorial School in Nain is gathering more and more students.
The program was launched last Monday.
Jacob Larkin is the Principal.
He says more students have been staying through the lunch hour each day.
Grades k-3 students who live over 0.8km away from the school are invited to stay in the school for lunch.
The option is given to avoid the lengthy walks made by the young students during the cold winter months.
Larkin adds that this is a pilot project and they hope to offer the option to more students in the future.
