Students and teachers from Riverview Collegiate Institute, Central Collegiate, and Empire School in Moose Jaw, prepared a catchy video promoting the benefits of citizenship and the value of citizenship education. Recorded in and around the three schools, and with the support of Safeway and the Moose Jaw City Police, this video is a great example of participatory and engaged citizenship.
“The Last Line” is a made for television documentary about the increasing diversity in Saskatoon. With a focus on the newcomer community, and in particular on the newcomer children integrating into the school system, the documentary looks at some of the challenges and opportunities that are, in many ways, common to many communities in Saskatchewan. As well, the video explores the larger global context of immigration and the need to promote inclusion.
This video was produced by Red Mango Productions, and supported by CTV Saskatchewan and Think Good. Do Good.
