Students Treated to Inside Look at Our Democracy

Released on March 29, 2018

Today at the Legislative Building, the Provincial Capital Commission is hosting more than 30 Grade 8 students and their teachers from the Horizon School Division for the semi-annual educational program, A Day in the Legislative Assembly.

“This program provides Saskatchewan youth with an excellent opportunity to learn about our democratic system of government, and about those who uphold it,” Minister Responsible for the Provincial Capital Commission Ken Cheveldayoff said.  “It’s important to teach the next generation about our province’s democracy and its history, so that we might inspire them to be part of its future.”

Students from Ituna School and Kelvington High School will get a VIP tour of the Legislative Building, after being introduced in the House and witnessing Question Period.  The students will also be invited inside the Chamber to take part in a panel discussion led by the Speaker of the Legislative Assembly Mark Docherty.

During this unique panel event, students will have the chance to sit in the members’ seats, learn about roles and responsibilities of elected officials and ask questions of Minister Cheveldayoff, MLA for Regina Elphinstone-Centre Warren McCall, and Clerk of the Legislative Assembly Greg Putz.

“Our students are excited to be here and to be part of such a rare, hands-on learning opportunity,” Ituna School teacher Cynthia Yanko said.  “Being chosen to tour our provincial seat of government and interact with elected officials is a real honour for our students.”

The students will meet with their local representatives, MLA for Last Mountain-Touchwood Glen Hart, and MLA for Kelvington-Wadena Hugh Nerlien.

“This is a really fun, engaging way for our students to enhance what they learn in Grade 8 Social Studies,” Kelvington High School teacher Rob Lissinna said.  “Learning from a textbook is great, but witnessing Question Period in the Chamber enables our students to live the life of a member of the Legislative Assembly for a day.  That’s really special.”

A Day in the Legislative Assembly was created in 2012 as part of the 100th anniversary of the Legislative Building, and will be hosted again in the fall of 2018.
