Inquiring into Government: Grade 5 Students at Oakville Town Hall
On Friday, May 4th, two of our grade five students headed to Oakville Town Hall for the annual 'Bring it to Council' competition. Sophia and Ryan had the opportunity to sit in as a town councillor and present their idea on how to make Oakville more livable. In addition, they debated and voted with other local students on a livable Oakville topic. Later in the day, Ryan and Sophia were able to have a meet-and-greet with the Mayor of Oakville, Rob Burton. Through this experience our students learned that they too can have a voice and in order to make changes for the good of our community.
