There was a sea of pink as South Broadview Elementary students and staff showed their overwhelming support of B.C.'s anti-bullying's Pink Shirt Day on Wednesday!
Lieutenant Governor of B.C. Judith Guichon visits schools
Posing for â€śselfiesâ€ť with students, joking that her job as Lieutenant Governor was easy compared to being woken up at 2:30 a.m. in the morning to pull a calf, and admitting with a grin that it was her staff, not her, that actually â€śtweetedâ€ť, B.C.Ăs Lieutenant Governor Judith GuichonĂs presentation seemed to hit the right note with students at A.L. Fortune and Pleasant Valley Secondary Schools during her visit on Wednesday.
The former 4-H leader and Merritt rancher gave the students a brief overview of the role of Lieutenant Governor and in maintaining a civil society as well as talking about her â€śthree Rsâ€ť which are Respect, Relationship and Responsibility. She also outlined what she would like to accomplish over her five year tenure as Lieutenant Governor, which includes promoting music and arts, and she extended an invitation to students to create an original song for CanadaĂs 150th birthday, coming up in 2017 (rules on her website).
She also wants to â€śtravel to every valley in British Columbia because we are lucky to live in this diverse, beautiful provinceâ€ť and promote stewardship of the land so that there are healthy people, communities and environment. She is working on encouraging leadership and is setting up mentorship programs for youth. As well, she will be continuing the work of former Lieutenant Governor Steven Point and opening libraries and literacy programs in remote areas of the province. â€śWe opened four last year and another three this year.â€ť
