Students on Ice

Garry Donaldson from the ​Canadian Wildlife Service will be at TRHS Wednesday, Feb. 15th at lunch to meet with students interested in the Students on Ice program in room 222 (Mrs. MacKinnon's room).  

Students on Ice is a non-profit organization that aims to educate youth about the importance of the polar regions while promoting and supporting their personal growth and inspiring them to achieve their goals in a sustainable way.  About 100 students from Canada and other countries engage in activities on a wide range of topics ranging from arts and culture, history and politics, science and sustainable development, climate change, economy, governance and geopolitics and many other polar topics.  Participants learn from their peers, as well as around 80 staff that include indigenous elders, scientists, artists, musicians, photographers, journalists, business and opinion leaders among others.  Combining these enormous opportunities with ship-based travel in spectacular Arctic landscapes and seascapes makes for an experience that is regularly referred to as life-changing.!
