Speaker in the Schools Program
The Honourable Linda Reid, Speaker of the Legislative Assembly, successfully launched the Speaker in the Schools Program in the fall of 2012. This initiative encourages students in grades 4 through 7 to engage in democracy and consider contributing to their communities by becoming parliamentarians when they grow up. Madame Speaker has travelled to classrooms around the province, meeting with students and leading them through a model legislature exercise.
