Tyler Lalonde, a Grade 8 student at St. John Catholic School will be joining the Provincial Page Program at Queen's Park. The Page Program is geared toward students that are high academic achievers and who have a keen interest in politics and government. Shelley Martel, MPP for Nickel Belt, will be at St John Catholic School to welcome Tyler Lalonde into the Legislative Page Program at Queen's Park on Wednesday, March 8 at 10:00 a.m.|
Tyler will serve in an intensive educational program at the Legislature in Toronto for four weeks beginning in May 2006. Along with his duties in the Legislature, Tyler will continue with his regular course of studies in Math, The Arts, Social Studies and Language. One of the most daunting tasks Tyler will face will be to memorize all the names and faces of the MPPs so that he can carry messages and other works assigned to him by the Speaker.
