Stettler schools show their stuff in presentation to school board

When the Clearview School Division met last week, it was Stettler schools’ turn to share the spotlight

When the Clearview School Division met last week, it was Stettler schools’ turn to share the spotlight in the “celebration presentation” program.

William E. Hay Composite High School Grade 10 students Alicia Nibourg, Dakota Schwarzenberger and Deanne Walker presented the Global Socialization Project that their class is studying.

It involves the “fair-trade” certification, whereby there’s a slightly higher cost to Canadian consumers for products like bananas, tea, sugar and coffee from developing countries. Their farmers receive a fair price and it builds a brighter future for them and their families, the students said.

The students challenged Clearview School Division to use “fair-trade” coffee for six months, a challenge that the County of Stettler has already accepted.

Grade 8 students Hannah McKay, Kalie Tulan and Alyssa Henderson from the Stettler Middle School presented YCAT (Youth Cultural Ambassador Training), a student-driven program developed at Stettler Middle School. Through multiple measures, students have made “positive advances” in school spirit, bullying awareness and anti-bullying, student appreciation and made school more fun.

The Stettler Concert Band, represented by Mike Burkinshaw, Alyssa Henderson and music teacher Eric Rahn, made a presentation on the band’s trip to Disneyland.

The 93-member band performed on the Disney stage, participated in workshops and learned part of the soundtrack of The Lion King.

The Stettler version was put into the video.
