Two Initiatives of Greater Saskatoon Catholic Schools students and staff have been recognized in the City of Saskatoon's 2021 Living in Harmony Awards. These awards recognize outstanding achievements in contributing to the elimination of racial discrimination in our community.
The Newcomer Youth Engagement Program is recognized as the Best Overall Poster Winner and the Best Video Submission went to St. Frances Nēhiyaw (Cree) Bilingual School, EcoJustice Class.
Winners were announced in a virtual ceremony online on March 19, 2021. The City of Saskatoon's website states, "This year, in order to recognize the award winners while keeping everyone safe, the City released a video in lieu of hosting an in-person presentation."
Because the 2020 awards were abruptly cancelled early in the pandemic, two 2020 award winners from GSCS were also acknowledged during the virtual ceremony: Best Elementary Submission to École St. Matthew School, Grades 4-6, and Best High School Submission to St. Frances Nēhiyaw Bilingual School, Grade 9 Class.
Congratulations to all winners!
