Warman students, RCMP officers build new bridges

On June 2, two members of the Warman RCMP detachment joined the Students of Warman High Adventure Team (SWAT) on their annual canoe trip.
The group travelled to Missinipe in Northern Saskatchewan to partake in a 4 day canoe trip.
Constables Steve Jacobs and Kim Nording braved the weather with the high school students in an effort to forge stronger relationships between the school, the RCMP and the community.
Weather was a large factor for the trip and tried the ruggedness of the participants.
It was great to see the group bond together and persevere through the cold and rainy conditions. It was an eye opening and humbling experience for the officers, teachers and students alike.
The students enjoyed listening to stories of why Constables Jacobs and Nording joined the force as well as hearing about their experiences serving the public.
Some of the highlights included the fresh fish feast, bonding with each other around the campfire and gaining new canoeing skills and techniques.
The WHS staff and students hope to continue fostering these relationships and continue to have RCMP members be a part of these annual trips.
The Outdoor Ed team greatly appreciates the time and effort that the officers spent on the trip. These positive relationships will not be forgotten.
