Marymount Academy Hosts OSAID ’07: Sink or Swim Regional Conference
Marymount Academy will be hosting its very first Regional OSAID (Ontario Students Against Impaired Driving) conference this weekend (November 16 to 18) at Marymount Academy, 165 D’Youville Street, Sudbury.
Seventy OSAID members from across Northern Ontario will be participating in the event representing seven schools; (Korah Collegiate and Vocational School, Sir James Dunn Collegiate, Alexander Henry High School, Michipicoten High School, Lasalle Secondary School, Sudbury Secondary School and Marymount Academy).
The three-day conference will include a number of workshops such as yoga, self defence, smart serve presentation as well as a number of guest speakers. Keynote speakers will include Ron Roy of Action Sudbury (who will be performing a smart serve workshop for forty students), and Stephanie Kovala, a student from Sault Ste. Marie, whose father passed away in an impaired driving accident.
OSAID was created in 1987 by students who passionately wanted to spread the anti-impaired driving message. Marymount Academy is the only school in the City of Greater Sudbury with an active OSAID chapter.
