Power and Politics

On Thursday, Grade five and six had a special guest speaker pay a visit to Crestwood School as part of their Social Studies units.  Grade Five is currently studying Aspects of Canadian Government and Grade Six are focusing on the Canadian experience. Jennifer Blitzer is a lawyer who has worked for the Provincial Government including the Ministry of Tourism, the Ministry of Citizenship and Immigration and the Ministry of Education.  Jennifer shared some of her work experiences with the students.  Her presentation covered immigration programs, the process of lawmaking and some interesting legal cases involving the government. The students were eager to learn more about Jennifer’s career and asked some thought provoking questions. It was a wonderful afternoon and we all walked away with a better understanding of how government works.
