The program - which has run for 37 years - is a unique week-long experience for high school students. With 15 themes to choose from, there's something for everyone. Grade 11 F.P.

The Board of Trustees and Senior Administration highlighted for the Minister some of the many unique programming opportunities in Livingstone Range School Division, including the Leader in Me program at W.A.
