Welcome to Socially Responsible Citizenship!
Sunrise School Division is dedicated to the pursuit of an education that enables every learner "to be knowledgable, respectful, responsible, caring and productive, contributing citizens".

Alternative Ed. Students Give New Meaning to "Welcome"
Students at Mrs. Lucci's in Lac du Bonnet are creating a welcoming environment not only for local residents but new residents to Canada. In conjunction with Notre Dame Du Lac Catholic Church, students are creating Welcome signs for residents to purchase for their homes for $20.00. Made with salvaged boards, love and creativity, students will donate all proceeds to support newly arriving Syrian refugees to Winnipeg. Their social justice efforts are doubling the welcome this holiday season. Contact Karen Kost at 204-345-9909 for more information.
