Out and About

A group of international students took a trek to Gros Morne National Park earlier this month. Dr. Michael Newton, who teaches religious studies at Grenfell, volunteered to share his knowledge of Gros Morne with the students. Participants took in the Bonne Bay Marine Station, a number of look outs, as well as the Lobster Cove Head Lighthouse and its interpretation centre. From left: Maria Burn from Belize, Gulnaaz Mehdi from Bangladesh, and Aura Villanueva Juanes from Mexico enjoy the local scenery.
