The Honourable Minister of Education, Gerard Kennedy (second from right), was in Sudbury recently to speak to board officials and trustees representing the four provincial school boards. The one-day regional training seminar held at the Howard Johnson Hotel was hosted by the Ministry of Education for newly elected and returning school board trustees. The purpose of the seminar was to provide information on the working relationship between school boards and the Ministry. The seminar also provided trustees with an overview on governance, curriculum, labour relations, and funding formula for school boards. The Honourable Minister took time from his busy schedule to visit St.Theresa Catholic School on Walford Road while in Sudbury.
