A stray seal paid a visit to a Nelson school last week.
Students of Garin College were surprised to see the juvenile critter basking outside classrooms on Thursday morning.
Students sealed off the area so the pup could enjoy a snooze in the sun before being returned to the ocean.
The school says the “precious wee visitor” decided to make Garin College its home over night.
“We sealed off the area until the DOC ranger collected him/her this morning to transport it safely back to the water.”
