A Day in the Legislative Assembly

On November 22, 2018, 44 Sun West students from Kyle, Beechy and Eatonia had the opportunity to visit the Legislative Building in Regina and participate in the A Day in the Legislative Assembly! The program is sponsored by the Provincial Capital Commission.  Every year, grade 8 classes across the province have an opportunity to apply to attend this unique and informative opportunity. Classrooms are randomly selected, but different divisions are invited to apply every year and this year was Sun West’s turn! Congratulations to these teachers whose applications were selected: Adam Naismith (Eaton School), Brianne Denning (Beechy School), and Tatum Schneider (Kyle School). Thanks also to teachers from the following schools who also made applications: Loreburn Central School, Rosetown Central High School, Outlook High School, Kindersley’s Elizabeth Middle School, Lucky Lake School, Davidson School, and Biggar’s St. Gabriel School.

 A Day at the Legislative Assembly provides students with a view of the Legislative Building and a chance to learn about the democratic process — a great connection to the Grade 8 Social Studies Curriculum. Students also had an opportunity to meet the Speaker of the Legislative Assembly, their MLA, watch Question Period, and tour the Legislative Building. As a special treat, students even had a chance to meet the Premier! 
Pictured are students from Beechy School with the Premier and on the steps of the Legislative Assembly with their MLA.  All schools had commemorative photos taken with MLAs.  Eaton School created a video to commemorate their visit and students from Kyle were featured in a newspaper story!  Well done Sun West!
