On Tuesday, April 26th, we went to the Thunder Bird House in Winnipeg for a UNESCO Conference. We were each put in a different group. Each group had to build a country and then build bridges to other countries to trade goods. The bridges represented working with others. The food was really good! We had bannock taco burgers. It was a great day!

UNESCO Conference – April 25th & 26th
On Monday April 25th and Tuesday April 26th four students: Casidy D., Jaylyn D., Chloe K., and Tiana D. all went to the Canadian Commission for UNESCO Conference – Building a Sustainable Future: Global Citizens in the 21st Century.
The opportunity was a once in a life time thing. All four if us agreed that hearing people like Elder Kelly, the CEO of the Canadian Museum for Human Rights and Brian Bowman, the Mayor of Winnipeg give speeches was amazing. Personally, this is one thing that I will take with me till the day I die: “ALL HUMAN BEINGS ARE BORN FREE AND EQUAL IN DIGNITY AND RIGHTS.” That was the main point. So many people from around Canada were there. If given the chance, we would all do it again.
