This weekend I type to you from the Westin Bayshore Hotel in Vancouver as I left Thursday to attend the 22nd Annual Aboriginal Education Conference. Today I got to listen to the Minister of Justice & Attorney General of Canada- Jody Wilson-Raybould.
Parents should also know that the Minister of Education and delegates toured Westmount Friday November 25th. This is positive that the Ministry is touring our campus to see the pressures on our school with our current student body total.
Here is a look at the week ahead as we enter the last week of November:
