The Emera Oval is one of HRM’s most fun outdoor sports attractions that thousands of people get the opportunity to enjoy all year long. In the fall we visited the Oval as a school rollerblading and the students had a blast so we promised we would come back as soon as the ice went in. In March we did exactly that, loaded everyone up in our passenger vans and went to the oval for an outdoor skate. Some more firsts for a few of our international students – skating and ice!
Having 20+ hockey players on the ice certainly helped with tips, instruction and mentorship; what a great sight to see some of our veteran skaters teaching inexperienced skaters how to take those first strides.
