Last night the Flin Flon School Board presented Mikylo Odut with his Student Citizenship Award from the Manitoba School Boards Association recognizing exemplary citizenship in school and the community. Members of the Equity Social Justice Gay, Straight Alliance Group from Hapnot Collegiate were also presented with the Student Citizenship Award of Merit and teacher Daniel Dillon’s group accepted the award for the Virtual Reality Project receiving the Premier Award for School Board Innovation. Dillon thanked the Board for their continued support and Trustee Leslie Fernandes said it was an honor to attend the awards and was so proud of how well our Division was represented.
Superintendent Constance McCleese reported she felt fortunate to participate in the recent French Immersion trip to France. The students did Flin Flon proud as not only did they experience Frances culture and history they conducted themselves in a polite and respectful manner.
In closing Board Chair Amy Sapergia-Green sent the Division’s condolences to those affected regarding the Humbolt tragedy encouraging the community to reach out and support each other if needed. She also invited the community to attend the Robb Nash presentation Thursday night at Hapnot Collegiate.
