​Sun West CSLC Delegates WOW Board of Education

At its regular December meeting, the Sun West Board of Education was visited by the Sun West delegates who attended the recent Canadian Student Leadership Conference (CSLC) in St. John, New Brunswick.

The CSLC took place October 11-14. Nine student delegates and three advisors from Sun West were among hundreds of delegates from across Canada. The school division annually sponsors a delegation of students from Sun West schools to attend the conference and as part of the sponsorship, the students present what they learned at the conference to the Board.

The students captured the enthusiasm of the conference by entering the Board room in Rosetown shouting the Saskatchewan chant that Saskatchewan delegates performed as they entered the conference during the Opening Ceremonies. Their boisterous enthusiasm brought the Board to their feet as they clapped along.

Each student described aspects of the conference to the Board that included powerful keynote addresses, exciting and educational workshops and many opportunities to get to know other students from across Canada.

After explaining the wide range of activities, they participated in and the experiences that made the most impact on them, they then led the Board members and Senior Management in some of exciting motivational activities that were also a big part of the conference. Board and Senior Management good naturedly danced, shouted and carried on with big smiles on their faces while the students demonstrated how capable they already are in providing leadership.

Information about how to be part of the Sun West delegation to the 2024 CSLC will be coming out in the early spring. Watch for it!
