Knowing Ourselves Knowing the World: A Global Citizenship Journey from Saskatchewan to El Salvador
Last summer, the Saskatchewan Council for International Cooperation (SCIC) provided a unique, international experiential learning opportunity for globally-minded Saskatchewan high school youth to visit and connect with Saskatchewan non-governmental organizations working in El Salvador. Youth participants, including one student from Martensville High School, met with staff and volunteers from local organizations and community members impacted by international development efforts to learn how they can continue to be involved in international development, locally and globally. The inspiring SCIC opportunity gave these young people information and ideas to take meaningful action as global citizens.

Note to parents/guardians: Emergency Preparedness Planning In addition to conducing fire and bus evacuation drills, schools need to practice for other kinds of potential emergencies. Two main ones include Lockdowns and Hold and Secures.
Lockdown Lockdown is defined as the restriction of movement during the time of a potentially serious violent incident. Schools go into lockdown when there is a significant and immediate threat inside or in the direct vicinity of the building. During a lockdown students and staff take secured shelter, lock all classroom doors, and remain quiet.
Hold and Secure Hold and Secure is for exterior emergency situations not related, but in close proximity, to the school. In this situation, any students outside the building come in. The exterior doors are locked and monitored by staff. Movement may be restricted depending upon the threat. School continues to function normally inside the building.
