The Flin Flon School Board held their last meeting of the school year last night and heard from Wayne Elliott. Elliott asked the Board to seriously consider adding a voyageur canoe program to their current canoe program that starts in grade seven. Citing the importance of the voyageur canoe in the importing and exporting of goods in and out of central and western Canada, Elliott feels it would be beneficial for youth to experience the history behind the canoe. He also said he was willing to assist with the program.
Ruth Betts Community School will receive just over 20 thousand dollars from the Minister of Children and Youth Opportunities supporting the Family Room in its contributions to the school.
The Board extended its thanks to Kurt and the Wings Over Kississing staff who flew 61 grade six students over the community yesterday.
The Board wished the best to graduates, students and staff for a safe summer. School resumes September 9th.
