Hey there, time traveller!

After a very long and snowy winter, I’m pleased to finally enjoy some warmer weather. This is also the time of year that community members gather to clean up our neighbourhood. The Greenway organized its annual community cleanup of the trail in south St. Vital on Saturday, May 14.

I want to applaud The Greenway organizers and volunteers who consistently make a positive contribution to our environment in St. Vital.

As the weather warms, it’s also a signal that the school year is nearing an end. I want to thank all students, educators, administrators, support staff and all who work and learn in our schools. In the face of the COVID-19 pandemic, you responded by coming together as school communities. You took care of one another and put in the hard work to make these past school years happen as smoothly as possible.

While we have faced challenges, I want to congratulate all the amazing young leaders who have positively affected their school communities this year. Every year I am proud to recognize one deserving student from each of our St. Vital high schools (Centre scolaire Léo-Rémillard, Collège Jeanne-Sauvé, Dakota Collegiate, Glenlawn Collegiate, as well as the St. Vital Adult Education Centre) with a community-based scholarship. Although scholarship winners have not been selected as I write this, I would like to take the time now to publicly congratulate the scholarship recipients from the graduating classes of 2022. Our community is so proud, and I can’t wait to see what your future holds.

For school staff, I know that each day you’ve done your best to make your students feel safe and supported in an environment in which they can learn. However, education funding below the rate of inflation means that schools will have to make even more difficult decisions about the education of our kids. The Progressive Conservative government’s cuts to our schools are unacceptable.

We strongly believe that government should be focused on bolstering resources in the classroom. We want to see smaller classroom sizes and enhancements to nutrition programs and mental health supports. We also want to see real investments to tackle child poverty. These would go a long way to improving the educational outcomes for students in St. Vital.

If you need assistance from my office, please feel free to get in touch with me by email at Jamie.Moses@yourmanitoba.ca or by phone at 204-219-5407. Best wishes and stay safe.
