Congratulations to Christian McLary, Bayside Secondary School , who has been named to the Minister’s Advisory Council on Special Education. The formal invitation, which came directly from Minister Dombrowsky on December 9, 2010, asked Christian to take the three-year appointment as the only student representative in the province.
Christian is thrilled by this appointment and looks forward to his first meeting with the Minister on Wednesday, February 9.
