Gillam Teacher to Compete at the 

World Ball Hockey Championship 

in Pardubice, Czech-Republic

Dawn Tulk, the kindergarten through grade 8 Physical Education teacher at Gillam School will be competing at the World Ball Hockey Championship being held in Pardubice, Czech-Republic from June 1-10th. This will be her 3rd time representing Team Canada. 

Her impressive resume includes being named to World All-Star Teams, two World Ball Hockey gold medals as well as representing Newfoundland at the National Ball Hockey level. 

Dawn is among a select few that have represented our country in international competition and is considered to be one of the best ball hockey players not only in Canada, but in the world. 

The World Ball Hockey Championship occurs every two years. In 2013, Dawn competed in her home province of Newfoundland.  In the gold medal game, she scored the only two markers for Canada, securing the gold medal. 

group with cup.jpgDawn now resides and teaches in Gillam.  She has the support of the whole school when she competes. Before heading to Zug, Switzerland in 2015, she was recognized in front of the school and given an autographed Gillam School jersey. Both staff and students signed the jersey and supported her via social media while she was away. 

During World Championships, Dawn experiences elite level competition and has an opportunity to visit amazing attractions that the countries have to offer. 

Dawn has expressed tremendous gratitude for the support she has received from family, friends, Gillam School, her local community and from her teammates throughout the last few years.  

Dawn has been a great ambassador for hockey and has been a role model for youth in Canada. Dawn understands the importance and significance of wearing a Team Canada jersey and being a leader in hockey and physical activity for Canadians. 

Gillam is proud to have Dawn representing our country as a member of our school and community.

Symposium Trip

March 14-18, 2017​


On March 14th- March 18th, 17 students from Lynn Lake, Leaf Rapids, Norway House, Cranberry Portage, Moose Lake and Cormorant attended a career symposium in Winnipeg Manitoba. The career symposium is created to showcase leading industries, employment and educational opportunities in Manitoba and beyond, the Rotary Career Symposium is a unique event to help expand career possibilities! With over 200 booths from various educational institutions, engaging service provider sectors, and prospective businesses who are looking for students for future careers.

The students attended the career café and made connections with community employment service experts in career exploration, essential skills for the workplace, résumé writing, interview skills, training and the job market.

Some of the students walked in knowing what they wanted for future careers and others walked out knowing what they wanted to do with their future. The students participated in some of the guest speaker sessions such as optometry, social work and health care.​

Some Comments from Our Students Were Very Exciting...

“The career symposium gave me so much information that I had no idea existed” 
(Emily Rabbitskin)

“I loved the presentations and activities because I got to do hands on things and now I have 
found out what I like to do” 
(Anabelle Church)

“On this trip I learned I wanted to go to University, not college, I found information on things 
I am interested in and how the programs work” 

“I enjoyed the University of Manitoba, and now I think for sure this is where I want to go, 
we even got to see the law building and I want to be a lawyer” 
(Layla Baker)​

“It gave me a lot of thoughts on what I want to do with my future and before this trip I wasn’t even sure” (Joshua)

“I learned you can do anything you want in the world if you put your mind to it” 
(Cryshane Leronde)

“I learned there are a lot of jobs in the trades. I also learned a lot about University and college” 
(Dallas Beardy)

The students had a tour of the University of Manitoba and also the Red River College in which they had a great time exploring the areas and the students who wanted to partake in careers in trades fields were extremely happy to see the auto mechanic shop, the welding shop, the brick laying shop and the heavy duty equipment mechanic shop. Some of the students who want to do a trade said they would more than likely be attending Red River. ​

“Throughout this week I learned how to manage a schedule and stay on task, I got to experience 
what it is like to go to college and what to expect in college. I want to get into Carpentry, 
so I got to see that shop at the Red River College and I love it. 
I can’t wait to attend Red River, thank you so much for taking me on this trip” 
(Dolton Pronteau) 

“I really liked the career symposium because it showed me the different types of engineering 
programs there are.  I want to take engineering when I graduate and now I have some information 
on how to enroll into college and the programs that are offered” 
(Tyler McKay)

The students got to explore the large gymnasiums at Red River College and were quite happy as a lot of them play many sports.

One student would like to play for the Winnipeg Bison’s one day!

"I want to try my best to get into the University of Winnipeg and become 
a basketball player for the Manitoba Bison's".

Hands on Fun at the Career Symposium!

"I loved being on this trip and being  able to explore different career ideas".
(William Pronteau) ​

The students also get a couple of hours to tour the Human Rights Museum in Winnipeg where they found the information quite educational.​

"I got to do a really cool tour of the museum and found out how it was made and its' history".
 (Mason Spence)
