Marymount Academy will be hosting its very first Regional OSAID (Ontario Students Against Impaired Driving) conference this weekend (November 16 to 18) at Marymount Academy, 165 D’Youville Street, Sudbury. |
Seventy OSAID members from across Northern Ontario will be participating in the event representing seven schools; (Korah Collegiate and Vocational School, Sir James Dunn Collegiate, Alexander Henry High School, Michipicoten High School, Lasalle Secondary School, Sudbury Secondary School and Marymount Academy).
The three-day conference will include a number of workshops such as yoga, self defence, smart serve presentation as well as a number of guest speakers. Keynote speakers will include Ron Roy of Action Sudbury (who will be performing a smart serve workshop for forty students), and Stephanie Kovala, a student from Sault Ste. Marie, whose father passed away in an impaired driving accident.
OSAID was created in 1987 by students who passionately wanted to spread the anti-impaired driving message. Marymount Academy is the only school in the City of Greater Sudbury with an active OSAID chapter.
