The Adventure Programmes offered by the Rotary Club of Gravenhurst are just
some examples of the many programmes that make us proud.
Three students from GHS recently spoke to our club on their adventures.
Lillian Armstrong was selected to attend the Forum for Young Canadians in
Ottawa. Many of the most interesting aspects of her days in Ottawa included
an all-day attendance at a law firm in downtown Ottawa; listening to several
MPs and learning much about how our country is run. This was followed by a
tour of Parliament Hill and a front row seat which included the always
interesting question period. Lillian certainly sounded like this was an
excellent experience for her and came back home with much knowledge gained
and an experience shared with other students from across Canada.
Ellie Winger and Graeme McNeice attended the Adventure in Hi-Tech in Ottawa
also taking place in October of this year. Both students (from GHS) share
an enthusiasm with technology by co-captaining the school robotics team.
Not only did they learn more about electronics (including some amazing
printers that do amazing things ) but they got an insight (from a local
business owner) on how best to “Get the Job” – including the best way to
present yourself doing an interview and to show the value you place in your
chosen profession ;in yourself; and in the position to which you are
applying. So many of the aspects of this adventure interested Ellie and
Graeme and gave them a way to “look into their future”
We thank these wonderful students and look forward to sending more of our
local students on these great Adventure Programmes.
