Every year, our schools welcome many special guests. Visitors create opportunities for staff and students to proudly represent their school as a unique community of teaching and learning. This courteous spirit was readily observed by Prime Minister Stephen Harper on Tuesday, April 7th during his stop at Seycove Secondary to announce an expansion of the Canada Student Grants program.
The Prime Minister was accompanied by Andrew Saxton, Parliamentary Secretary to the Minister of Finance and Member of Parliament for North Vancouver, and James Moore, Minister of Industry, who thanked Seycove Principal David Overgaard, staff and students for opening their doors to the Prime Minister and his entourage.
A visit from the Prime Minister is a complex event, involving police, security, media, special guests, government staff and elected officials. I would like to commend everyone at Seycove for their considerate and attentive manner in the preparations for, and throughout, this rare occasion. Learn more on our Splendid! blog.
