On March 13th 18 students and 3 chaperones left Flin Flon for a life changing school trip to France. Last night in front of the Board of Trustees for Flin Flon School Division Hapnot teacher Natalie Milligan and students Andie Shaw, Myla Bridgeman and Jeff Odegaard spoke about their travel experiences. From tireless fundraising efforts to offset costs, to stories about flying and sight seeing, the students took turns at the podium during a colorful and interesting power point presentation. Interesting to note that during their stay the students handed out Flin Flon coins to strangers. The coins were courtesy of the Chamber of Commerce as gifts to France from Canada. The weather during the trip was extremely good complimenting the traveler’s culture enriching experience.
In other news Superintendent Blaine Veitch encouraged parents and family members to attend the spring concert this evening presented by the grade four and five students at McIsaac School. April is celebrated as music month in Manitoba Schools and Veitch noted the strong band programs in our Division. On May 1st Hapnot band members will depart on a southern road trip that includes a date with the Winnipeg Symphony Orchestra.
