Kinnaird Elementary has partnered with the Castlegar Rebels to help Kindergarten students with skating at the local ice rink.

The hockey players donate their time Jan. 20, 27 and Feb. 3 from 10:30 to 11:30 a.m.

Teacher Elaine Pilla said the skating sessions are part of the school’s healthy living curriculum and a great opportunity for the kids to be engaged with the players.

“A lot of them look up to the Rebels so it’s really special for the kids to have something like this,” she added.

Pilla was astonished by the progress the children made from just two outings at the complex.

In total, 40 kindergarten students took to the ice on Tuesday.
