B.C. Provincial Debate Championships

The Debate and Speech Association of British Columbia held its annual provincial championships, the Law Foundation Cup, in the Kootenays this year, and many of our UBC-WKTEP students were there to help judge. Hosted by J.L. Crowe Secondary School and St. Michael’s Catholic Elementary School, the event was an amazing success. Thanks to Marilyn Lunde, one of the tournament’s coordinators, for inviting our students to take part. Check out an impressive video of the event here:

Young Naturalists Activity

In February, several of our UBC-WKTEP students volunteered with the Young Naturalist Club of Nelson. Students were engaged in planning and leading outdoor activities for elementary aged students and their families. The event took place at Kokanee Creek Provincial Park just north of Nelson. Many thanks to Linda Homeniuk and Monica Nissen for supporting our students with such exciting and meaningful opportunities.
