Tyndall Park Graduations

Mr. Speaker, I am very proud of the accomplishments of the students in Tyndall Park. In seven schools across my constituency, students are celebrating their achievements as they graduate from elementary and junior high.

The grade 5s of Brooklands School are the youngest kids graduating from elementary school in Tyndall Park. Brooklands families come from many diverse ethnic backgrounds and take pride in learning from each other in a multicultural environment.

Mr. Speaker, Cecil Rhodes School and École Stanley Knowles School have the oldest students graduating from junior high.

The grade 9s at Cecil Rhodes are celebrating this afternoon at the International Worship Centre. And the graduating grade 8 students at Stanley Knowles will walk across the stage at Tec Voc School on June 27th. I wish them all the best as they begin high school in the fall.

Weston School and Prairie Rose Elementary schools are our smallest schools in my area with about 200 students each.

Finally, Garden Grove School is celebrating their grade 6 farewell today where the students will be presented with certificates of achievement. I had a special opportunity to get to know some of those students, and I brought them to the Winnipeg Art Gallery, the 100th anniversary exhibit.

The constituency of Tyndall Park is blessed with many bright students. I hope these young people and their families are happily celebrating this week.

Thank you, Mr. Speaker.
