Engaged Learners and Indspire Conference in Ottawa

May 27, 2020

​The Frontier Engaged Learners program recently sent 4 students to the National Indspire Youth Conference in Ottawa. All from different communities in Manitoba, students Evan, Tia, Ronaldo and Dre were chosen from a larger group of Engaged Learner applicants based on their academic performance and residence, showing outstanding attitudes and work ethics!

Each of the students had a great time on this adventure. Along with the Division chaperones, the group attended the Indspire Conference, and visited the Supreme Court of Canada, the Parliament Buildings, the Bank of Canada, and went to an NHL hockey game.

This trip provided an important opportunity for our youth involved. Upon reflection, students said they learned more about themselves, made valuable new friendships, and that the experience even made them stronger. For some, it was their first time travelling by airplane!

Since the trip has finished, our student Evan has been featured at the top of the Indspire website. We're so proud to see not only the impression this experience had on our students, but the impression our students made at the Indspire Conference.​
