    Gron Morgan students participate in Street Wolf Program

    Ecole Morgan Public School Grade 7 and 8 students are howling with enthusiasm as they participate in the Street Wolf Program. The school, in partnership with the Thunder Bay Indian Friendship Center, has provided the 14 session program that explores the issues faced by young people.

    “During these one to two hour sessions, the participating students will better be able to understand certain realities and the consequences of negative choices,” says Jo-Anne Giertuga, Vice-Principal of Ecole Gron Morgan Public School. “According to the life cycle in aboriginal teachings, young people in this stage of their lives work to find truth in their lives. Their role is to challenge, to question everything and to develop their beliefs and attitudes about their world.”

    The Street Wolf Program allows for self-reflection and critical thinking and compliments the focus of the school SMART goals of reading/writing connections. The facilitators of this workshop are Esther Mackay, Child Youth Wellness Worker and Anthony Shapwaykeesic - Wasa-Nabin Urban Aboriginal Youth Worker.

    Ecole Gron Morgan Public School students and the facilitators will be present and available for interview.
