Our department was invited to attend the 8th annual Youth Forum in St. James - Assiniboia School Division!
Every year student and staff representatives from every school join together to learn about different issues in social justice. They examine a wide variety of causes, both local and international, and brainstorm ways that they can help! It was a very inspiring day, and we were honoured to be a part of it!
Our future is in very good hands!
