Learning and Leadership Conference for First Nation, Métis and Inuit students in the Barrie region school boards.

2015-01-20


The Ministry of Education is sponsoring a Learning and Leadership Conference for First Nation, Métis and Inuit students in the Barrie region school boards. 

This camp will be held at the Tim Horton Memorial Camp in Parry Sound from March 9-12, 2015.

If you know of a student in your community that would be a strong candidate for this leadership experience, please encourage him or her to talk to their principal or guidance counselor to get an application form.

The 2014-15 First Nation, Métis and Inuit Learning and Leadership Conference will focus on developing confidence, self-esteem, and leadership skills to empower participants to be more engaged in their school community and education. The conference will incorporate First Nation, Métis and Inuit cultures, histories and perspectives that reflect the student participants’ background.

PVNCCDSB has the opportunity to send 6 First Nation, Métis or Inuit students in Grades 7 to 10. The students will be accompanied by a teacher chaperone.

Please ask interested students to complete the attached application form and return it to the guidance counselor. The applications are due to Sharon Lajoie, Learning Support Services, latest by January 21, 2015. Once the 6 students have been selected, taking into consideration board-wide representation, grade levels and gender, release forms, consent forms and medical forms will be sent to those students selected.

The students, parents/guardians, teacher chaperone and the school principal are asked by the Ministry of Education to participate in an adobe connect information session after school on February 17 to be held at the Catholic Education Centre."
