We are the World Conference

Last Wednesday, February 26, Iroquois Ridge proudly hosted the We are the World Conference, also known as the Student Engagement Conference, and in our school, the Grade 9 Conference.

Wednesday was a busy, but successful day, where schools all over Halton came to over to the the Ridge to see the conference, filling our school with a few hundred extra kids. The chaos paid off though. Renowned Canadian speakers such as Ian Tyson and Blake Fly gave keynote speeches and student leaders from our own school led workshops, all designed to build leadership in the Grade 9's and 8's, whom this entire day was made for. It was a very successful event and was a great way to develop leadership and initiative in the younger portion of not only our school, but schools all over. If you were a Grade 9 attending the conference, be sure to spread what you learned that day, so that everybody can rise up and help make our school a better place.
