We are excited to announce the Sun West Student Leadership Seminar is back in person, on Wednesday October 5th in Rosetown at the Catholic Church (in conjunction with the face-to-face administration meeting at the Division Office). Students in Grade 8 to 12 are welcome to attend the Student Leadership Seminar in order to learn more about the Sun West Student Leadership Program and opportunities available this year. Empowering student leadership and fostering student voice remains a priority for our Sun West Student Leadership Program.
Our goal is to have at least 2 students from each of our Sun West Schools involved in our Student Leadership Program to ensure student voice from across our division. Our Student Leadership Program will have 2 main focuses including:
Team Sun West - opportunity to create a student-led leadership conference for peers.
Youth Consultation - allows for student voice in researching and providing information and solutions to our Board of Education.
Interested students must attend the Student Leadership Seminar in Rosetown to learn more about the program, engage in a variety of student leadership activities, as well as receive the online application details for the various opportunities available. The online application will be circulated to all students in attendance at the seminar.
Administrators, Student Leadership Team members, etc. can be involved in determining interested students and how many to attend the seminar. Administrators are asked to make necessary travel arrangements as this seminar aligns with the Admin meeting.
For more information contact your school principal or your Student Leadership Teacher Advisor.
