Take Your MP to School Day
November 30th, 2012 - 4:58pm
On November 20th, as part of UNICEF's "Take Your MP to School" initiative, Irene visited St. Pius X Catholic Elementary School in her riding.
Students from Grades 1-6 used this opportunity to involve their MP in their "Anti-Bullying" Campaign. Irene watched a video, play, and poster presentation by the students, and joined them in taking the anti-bullying pledge.
Irene also delivered two copies of "Our Country, Our Parliament" and two new maps of Canada for the school library, which she presented to the student parliament which organized the assembly.
Irene was one of twenty Members of Parliament participating in this year's program.
