Two Elm Creek School students attended this year’s Co-op Youth Leadership Retreat in Riding Mountain from April 30 to May 3, 2015. Kurt Runne and Sean Dessere represented our school at the retreat, which emphasizes leadership development, global education, and communication skills in a cooperative setting. In addition to many engaging and participatory sessions, the campers had lots of time to socialize, meet new people, and enjoy time outside in the beautiful setting.
The annual retreat hosts students from across Manitoba, and has been attended by many Elm Creek students over the years. Each year, we recruit students from grades 10 to 12 to attend. Make sure to ask Miss Ashley Cook (Elm Creek School staff rep) for details if you would like to go next May.
We would like to extend a big thank you to Elm Creek Co-op for sponsoring Kurt and Sean to attend.
