    by Jocelyne Pryer - Monday, 25 May 2015, 2:23 PM
     


    12 Claremont students joined Youth for Change and Inclusion at Shawnigan Lake for 4 days in earlier this month. There, they listened to inspirational speakers such as Peter Gary, Holocaust survivor, Tad Milmine, creator of Bullying Ends Here (http://www.bullyingendshere.ca/), and Darren Laur, a Victoria Police sergeant dedicated to teaching youth about internet safety. The students have come back energized and ready to share positive ideas and action with the rest of the school community.  What a great opportunity for these youth!  Click HERE to read a more detailed summary of the camp experience.
