Superintendent Tammy Ballantyne reported the challenge to win the Fire Hat is underway. Schools are challenging one another to complete their mandated ten fire drills first. It’s a fun way for schools to compete and it’s a much sought after achievement. Four youth mentors have been hired for this school year as each elementary school will benefit from two mentors.
School sports are in full swing as well as the Hockey Academy at both elementary schools. Orange is the color for Monday September 30th which is an opportunity to pave the way for anti-racism and anti-bullying policies. A reminder to wear an orange shirt honoring Residential School survivors and promote the spirit of reconciliation and hope for future generations.
Board Chair Murray Skeavington reported the Division is honored to have the Manitoba Lieutenant Governor Janice Filmon and Canada’s Governor General Julie Payette visiting the Division’s schools today and tomorrow as our communities celebrate Culture Days.
