For some, the end of summer marks the end of vacation, and for others, returning to school. In the case of the Healthy Start/ Départ Santé team, it’s time to say goodbye to two of our summer students, Nam Nguyen and Karine Ntihinyuka.
Coming to Saskatchewan with the program Young Canada Works, it is with a working knowledge of both official languages that the two young students will go back to their respective provinces, Nam to Manitoba and Karine to Québec. Indeed, their time at the Healthy Start/Départ Santé office has allowed them to experience different aspects of the project, like assembling the APE kits, collecting data, translating different texts, etc. Their contributions did not stop there, they organised activities for Réseau Santé en français de la Saskatchewan (the Healthy Start sponsoring organization) for the Fête fransaskoise (treasure hunt and bike ride).
The team wishes them the best of luck on returning to their studies.
