We were very lucky this week to take part in Meet Your Rep Day hosted by CIVIX, a non-partisan charity dedicated to building the skills and habits of active and engaged citizenship among young Canadians. We were able to connect with our M.P. for Sturgeon River--Parkland, The Honourable Mr. Lloyd M.P. The students worked hard learning about Canada's House of Commons and coming up with questions linked to our Social Studies learning this year. They did a marvellous job listening attentively, asking interesting questions, and demonstrating respect to our special guests Mr. Lloyd, our Parkland School Division's Board Vice-Chair Mr. Cameron, and our wonderful principal Mrs. Madge. The students have a stronger understanding of what democracy looks like in our country, and Mr. Lloyd was very flexible answering our questions and encouraging the students to become active citizens!
