Rotary Moment
October 24 is World Polio Day. The city of Vancouver had a World Polio Day proclamation with Mayor Robertson of the City of Vancouver.
Guest Speaker
Our guest speaker today was Trevor Stokes, from the Streetfront Alternative Program.
Streetfront is a Vancouver School Board alternative education program based out of Britannia Secondary School in Vancouver, British Columbia, Canada.
Streetfront approaches education with an emphasis on physical activities and outdoor experiences. We offer classes in Math, Science, Socials and English for grades 8 -10. In addition we have Physical Education, Outdoor Education, Planning, Woodworking, and Foods classes. We run three days per week, with some students training for and participating in the Seattle and Vancouver full and half Marathons. We also spend approximately 35 days of the 190 school days in an outdoor environment – this includes the three four-day camp trips.
