Feminist student group debuts at May 8 school board meeting BY KYLE DARBYSON

KYLE@THOMPSONCITIZEN.NET

Following in the steps of Hands, Heart and Hope (H3) and Students Offering Support (SOS), a new student activist organization has emerged to spread awareness about topics that don’t always get talked about. This group, known as Strives for Humanity and Equality (SHE), made its first public appearance at a May 8 School District of Mystery Lake board meeting, where its members laid out their plan to confront issues related to gender inequality in Thompson. Throughout their short presentation to the trustees, SHE revealed that the group was founded after one of its members, Taylar Hanson-Oliveira, noticed there was a severe lack of knowledge about female issues amongst the student body at R.D. Parker Collegiate. After recruiting her friends McKenna Brown, Kendra Martinussen and Anika Degroot, Hanson-Oliveira decided to form SHE to tackle subjects like body image, sexual violence and reproductive health head-on. Today, the group consists of 10 full-time members, one satellite member from the University of Manitoba’s Womyn’s Centre and a couple of staff representatives from RDPC, who will help get some the students’ more elaborate campaigns off the ground. Currently, SHE has been busy putting together donation boxes to collect female sanitary products for homeless women. In the future, these students will be looking to spearhead a number of different initiatives, like hosting women’s self-defence courses, requesting modifications to the high school’s dress code and encouraging their male counterparts to participate in events like the local Walk a Mile in Her Shoes campaign. When SHE’s presentation wrapped up, the board applauded the students for taking their first big step in this process and offered to help them out in any way they can. “It’s really important work that you’re doing and I commend you for taking it upon yourselves to start a group like this,” said trustee Sandra Fitzpatrick. “It’s definitely something that’s needed and it’s great to see young people being empowering and impacting others.” MENTAL HEALTH AND ACADEMIC ASSESSMENT During her education services and programming report, co-superintendent Lorie Henderson shared some provincial studies with the board, since several elementary schools in the SDML choose to participate. First up was the province’s Grade 5 Mental Health Sur-

vey, which measured the mental health and well-being of 67 students and 68 teachers in the district using five categories: pro-social behaviour, emotional symptoms, peer relationships problems, conduct problems and hyperactivity/inattention. According to the data, 81 per cent of students and 82 per cent of teachers who participated in this survey scored in the “No difficulties” category, while six per cent and nine per cent scored “very challenging,” respectively. Henderson also looked at the academic performance of Manitoba students in general through the 2016 Pan-Canadian Assessment Program (PCAP) report. While Manitoba students

are below the national average when it comes to reading, sciences and math, they did show a collective increase in test scores over time in all three categories. In 2016, which saw participation from École Riverside, Juniper School and Wapanohk School, 83 per cent of Manitoba students are at or above the expected reading level. “If you look there is a steady increase from 2010,” said Henderson. “In 2013 there was a bit of a dip in some of the areas, but again it’s increased in 2016. So we’re certainly on the right track.” The next SDML school board meeting is May 22 at their headquarters on 408 Thompson Drive.

Manitoba Games lay groundwork for return of high school wrestling BY KYLE DARBYSON

KYLE@THOMPSONCITIZEN.NET

After a 10-plus year hiatus, Sport Manitoba is looking to reinstate amateur wrestling into the school curriculum here in Thompson. Sport Manitoba representative Kaitlin Kucharski made this clear May 12, when she helped set up a wrestling clinic at the Thompson Regional Community Centre (TRCC) to show some kids what the sport is all about. Throughout the morning, Kucharski and a couple of Thompsonites taught Grade 6−12 students how to perform some basic moves, attempting to remove the stigma that wrestling is a “dangerous sport” that requires brute strength alone. “It’s a rather graceful sport. There’s lots of technique behind it,” said Kucharski, who has about 12 years of wrestling experience under her belt. “So you don’t need to be the strongest person. I’m not the strongest person. I’m really small. But if you have speed and technique, then you can definitely wrestle.” Kucharski says the 2018 Manitoba Winter Games renewed local interest in wrestling, since the seven-day event prominently featured amateur wrestlers from all over the province, including competitors from northern communities like Cross Lake. “After the Manitoba Games happened here, there was interest from our northern Sport Manitoba leads that live here in Thompson,” she said. “There was interest from a couple gym teachers … and they saw kids excited about it, so they decided to try and promote it and start this program.” One local resident set to spearhead this initiative is TRCC employee Lyall Zielke, who competed in this sport at a national level and remembers when Thompson’s last wrestling program was shut down over a decade ago. “All the coaches kind of moved on and it branched off and then there was no rental space anymore,” he told the Thompson Citizen following Saturday’s clinic. “But we got this mat donated from Sport Manitoba … and then they donated it to us to start a club, to start a new sport in the town.” Since the public’s been without a wrestling program for a long time, Zielke is going to take it slow at the beginning and stick to the fundamentals when he organizes additional clinics for this summer. “Everyone around this town probably hasn’t wrestled at all, so we’re going to start at a very basic level,” he said. “So we’ll just start there and work with the

kids. See what they like, see what they don’t like about the program and go from there.” While he’s been away from the sport for a while, Zielke says that he’s ready to step back onto the mat and get a group of 10−20 students ready to wrestle competitively in the fall. “It’s a great sport to be involved in. There’s self-discipline, you’ll be in great condition,” he said. “It’s kind of a individual sport but you also work as a team, so it’s good for team-building skills as well.” To find out more about this new wrestling program, please contact Zielke on Facebook or via email at zielkelyall@gmail.com.

PROMOTING WILDFIRE PREPAREDNESS STUDENTS MARCHINGNEWS PAGE 2 AGAINST GUN VIOLENCE NEWS - PAGE 2

It took a couple of close games and even a bit of overtime magic, but R.D. Parker Collegiate's senior girls' basketball team beat all challengers at the AAA high school provincials in Winnipeg March 15-17 to claim the title as the top team in Manitoba for the third time in the past four years. The Trojans beat the University of Winnipeg Collegiate Wesmen 58-50 in overtime on St. Patrick's Day to claim the provincial championship. The teams were close through most of the game, tied at the end of the ďŹ rst and second quarters and RDPC behind by two to start the fourth, though they were down by as many as nine points in the third quarter. The Trojans tied the score 44-44 with about four minutes left and then built up a ďŹ ve-point lead, but the Wesmen battled back to tie the game and send it to overtime. The team didn't let the late comeback by their opponents affect them though, and outscored the Wesmen 9-1 in overtime to claim the championship title. "It was tied for most of the game," said coach Christine Sim. "We were down for most of the game but then we came back usually and always tied it by the end of the quarter. Then we went into overtime for ďŹ ve minutes and buckled down." RDPC had never won a senior provincial basketball title until 2105 when they ďŹ nally claimed the crown after having lost in the ďŹ nals the two previous years. They repeated as champions in 2016. The senior girls lost both their games at provincials last year after most of the members of the championship squads graduated, but the junior girls team won RDPC's secondever junior varsity AAA girls' championship.
