This year, 17 Team Sun West (TSW) students have been busy preparing for the Student Leadership Conference to be hosted in Biggar April 11th -12th, 2019. The theme is “SHOOT FOR THE STARS”!
Students from schools across the division in grade 7 to 12 will have the opportunity to learn from Keynote Nick Foley, various breakout presenters, and our own student leaders. TSW will lead an interactive team building session with delegates and our Youth Consultation Group will lead a session to gather input from delegates and provide useful tips to improve student learning.
Students in Grades 8-12 from Sun West schools apply to be part of a team called “Team Sun West (TSW)”. This team of student leaders organizes, prepares, and plans an annual division-wide student led leadership conference.
Every year, student representatives from Sun West schools apply to be involved on our Youth Consultation Group. This opportunity provides students with a platform to gather student voice on relevant ideas/issues and share research, findings, ideas, suggestions, etc. with our Sun West Board of Education. The intent is to inform and improve student programming and policies in order to further engage students and improve their quality of education.
