Yorkton Regional High School (YRHS) Principal Mike Haczkewicz along with Vice Principals Johnna McBride and Dennis Nesseth, and SRC Advisor Roby Sharpe accompanied members of the YRHS Student Representative Council as a delegation to the Board. President Tasso Stamatinos, SRC members Anara Morrison and Zane Chopik delivered a presentation to the Board of Education regarding the 2020 Canadian Student Leadership Conference (CSLC) being hosted in Yorkton during September of 2020. Though Yorkton is the host community, students from across the Good Spirit School Division are involved as student leaders for the event in 2020.
The Conference theme is "From the Roots Up" signifying that the very first CSLC began in Yorkton in 1985 when the Premier of the day, challenged Yorkton students and their advisor to host a national conference. Since 1985, the conference has been hosted in communities across Canada, giving student leaders from across the country an opportunity to attend workshops to further develop their leadership skills, build confidence, and discover new ideas to help them make a difference in their own schools and communities.
The Board of Education has committed $44,000 to the transportation costs associated with hosting the conference in 2020. The Board recognizes the importance of student leadership and is proud to support an event that will build leaders across our school division.
