Keep The Promise

Two students and their teacher represented Elmwood High at this year’s first annual Keep the Promise Summit in Ottawa, an initiative inspired by the late human rights activist June Callwood. Over the course of three days, students were able to share their knowledge of child poverty in Manitoba to over 65 student representatives from across Canada.
Collectively, participants began to strategize solutions to address Canadian poverty in the realm of education, employment, food equity, shelter and regional issues.  Students then presented the facts and potential solutions to members of Parliament at a live Town Hall meeting. Additionally, students from Elmwood were able to visit Peace Hill where they voiced their concern to NDP leader, Thomas Mulclair.
                Bringing home a new understanding and empathy, Elmwood participants have exciting ideas of what they can do to organize student- led initiatives within their school to address child poverty in Canada.
