Students from Thompson’s Juniper School travelled to Winnipeg for an educational field trip last month. During the trip the students met with students from Hugh John Macdonald School and took in a bike tour around the capital city, as well as touring the legislative building.
When the students arrived at the legislatuive building they were met by The Pas MLA Amanda Lathlin, the first First Nations women to be elected to the legislature. The students watched question period and stopped in to see Thompson MLA Steve Ashton.
The trip had a focus on First Nations and how everyone is a treaty person. Lucy Mayor, principal of Juniper School, says the trip was a success.
