HSD Expo

The current Hooked on School Days (HSD) campaign highlights that everyone can get involved throughout the journey our youth take, from early childhood to adulthood, in ways that represent “+”s not only for their perseverance towards school, but also their educational success.

To this end, a photo exhibition was organized to showcase the different ways young people take action to further their own educational success and school perseverance.

What a great opportunity to discover inspirational initiatives and organizations across Estrie that are making all the difference!

Happy viewing!
