Tori and Amelia are Claremont grade 9 students that represented B.C. last week at the 45th annual National Student Commonwealth Forum (NSCF) held in Ottawa. The aim of the program is to bring high school students from across the country to our nation's capital city to learn about the Commonwealth and have unforgettable experiences in Ottawa.
This year’s theme was Global Water Issues and included 64 students from across Canada. “It was a phenomenal event, we billeted with a local family, debated in the Senate, represented Malta at CHOGM (Commonwealth Heads of Government Meeting), attended a social event at Earnscliffe the British High Commissioners residence (previously Sir John A. MacDonald’s house), participated in a BBQ with MPs and Senators on Parliament Hill, and met other like-minded youth from across the country”.
