It was great to attend the conference with Mrs. Jeanie Johnson, our head librarian. Students were cooperative and attended workshops of their interest. We learned about each other and we shared other's passions for their causes. What is the expectation of change? We will brainstorm at the May 24 meeting at Sarah Cox's house from 11:00-12:30. We will have a gathering where students can swim, eat, and plan next year.
Overall, the 25th anniversary conference was not what I expected. The food was not optimal, the cost was high, the weather did not help, and the Peace Jam project was disjointed and unorganized.
Desmond Tutu was inspiring and as in any conference some of the workshops were more valuable than the others.
