Souris teacher Jonathan Filewich, who is a Brandon University graduate and a current student in BU’s Master of Education program, is trying to land some big money to support technology in the Southwest Horizon School Division.
Filewich is one of 20 teachers from across North America in the running for the Future Goals Most Valuable Teacher program for March 2021.

Brandon University’s (BU’s) Mini University is partnering with the Canadian Women’s Foundation to offer a free STEM (Science, Technology, Engineering and Math) program for girls ages nine through 13.
The Canadian Women’s Foundation is contributing up to $172,000 over the next four years for the Girls Can … program, which is designed to give girls confidence in a variety of STEM activities, including robotics, coding, game design, sound engineering and more. The program is structured to be safe, fun and non-judgmental as participants work with Mini U’s mentors to determine the direction of the sessions.
