Hapnot teacher Daniel Dillon gave the Flin Flon School Board a presentation last night regarding the travel club’s proposed trip to Greece in the spring of 2015. Dillon told the board that over forty students have expressed interest in the trip that still needs the board’s approval.
A second presentation came from Ruth Betts Community School Principal Tammy Ballantyne and teacher Amber Kubat with the school plans for next year. Three main goals were to have monthly attendance rates at 95 percent or greater, reduce bullying incidents by 50 percent by next June and have each student achieve one year’s growth in literacy and numeracy.
In other school news the Division has received 40 thousand dollars from the Federal Government administered through the University of Brandon and UCN supporting two projects. Engaging All Learners and Peer Partners have been approved by the Vital Outcome Indicators For Community Engagement Project. Planning for the projects will continue in January.
