Youth conference at Spruce Ridge


Students linked hands during the youth conference at Spruce Ridge School.

Students at Spruce Ridge School in Estevan learned more about the community, their peers and themselves during a youth conference organized by the school community council on May 16.

Activities were held at different locations in the school. Students were divided into groups based on their grade, and they each attended three different sessions.

Students who are in Kindergarten to Grade 2 learned more about friendship and inclusion from the Estevan Comprehensive School's SHOUTS program; enhanced their creativity with Estevan Art Gallery and Museum educator Karly Garnier; and received fitness tips from Jennifer Olfert, who operates the JoFit program.

Grade 3 to 5 students attended sessions with South East Cornerstone Public School Division information-technology employee Caroline Gillies, who discussed digital citizenship; Estevan Police Service Constable Braden Lonsberry, who spoke on safety; and the Westmoreland Coal Company's emergency mine rescue team, who offered first aid tips.

The speakers for Grades 6 to 8 were: Lorelei Lachambre from the Envision Counselling and Support Centre, who spoke on healthy relationships; Sun Country Health Region addictions services employee Vanessa Kavalench, who discussed drug and alcohol awareness; and school counsellor Katie Methot, who explained the need for students to treat peers with respect.
