UNESCO Day and Curt Young

What an amazing two days of UNESCO activities - all relating to the theme of human rights - in our ECE and Elementary Divisions, on February 6th and 7th. Each grade level focused on a different right from the United Nations conventions, such as the rights of a child, and the right to a name, a family, an education, and a safe place to live. The first day started with an inspirational keynote speech and moving musical performance by Curt Young, from the Treaty 5 First Nations.

Thanks again, Sabine. Just based on that game, you have my vote for the sportsmanship banner!” Three CFIS students - Tom D., Zak J., and Alp U.
