The Flin Flon School Division Board of Trustees met this past Tuesday and approved a previous motion to assist student Jarek Osika financially with a thousand dollars to help cover expenses for his trip to Abu Dhabi. Jarek has been accredited by Youth Science Canada to participate in MILSET Expo Sciences International with his project Radio Eyes Black Hole Hunter. This is one of the biggest non-competitive STEAM events in the world that shines a spotlight on the creativity of children and youth from around the world. This year’s event runs September 22nd to 28th. The Board wishes him the best.
The Board also held elections for Chair and Vice-Chair. Congratulations to Murray Skeavington as new Chair and Amy Sapergia Green as Vice-Chair.
Superintendent Tammy Ballantyne gave a shout out to the North of 53 Co-op for supplying the food and beverages for the welcome back barbeque at Hapnot and Ruth Betts.
