Lights, Camera, Action!

March 22, 2010

The next generation of TV news anchors and weather reporters
were honing their skills at Red River College last week as part of the
RRC/Manitoba Moose Respond to Reading program.

A grade five classroom from Niji Mahkwa School won the TV
broadcast field trip through the Respond to Reading program and got to
experience what life is like inside a TV studio. Students took turns reading
the news from behind the news desk and doing the weather in front of a green
screen while their classmates watched on televisions throughout the studio.

Now in its tenth year, the Respond to Reading program is designed to encourage students in kindergarten to grade five to get into reading in a fun, motivational way.

Pizza party at RRC

March 16, 2010

Last week, a grade four class from Ecole Noel Ritchot shut
their textbooks, put on chef’s hats and made some delicious food at Red River
College.

The culinary experience came as part of a prize for being
selected as one of the winning classrooms in the RRC/Manitoba Moose Respond to
Reading
program. The program, now in its tenth year, is designed to be a fun,
motivational way to encourage children in kindergarten to grade five to read.

RRC Culinary Arts students and instructors helped the 30
grade four students make personal pizzas and decorate cookies. Afterwards, the
kids had a pizza party in the cafeteria before getting a tour of the campus.

Cre Comm students showcase their work

March 10, 2010

Second-year Creative Communications students at Red River College are
showing off their Independent Professional Projects (IPP) at the
Park Theatre
from March 10 to March 12.

The IPP is a self-directed course that Creative Communications students
are required to take in their second year. Here’s how it works:

  1. Students come up with an idea for a project and
    present it to a panel of instructors. Projects generally fall into one of four
    different categories: creative, promotional, documentary or research-based.
  2.  Once approved, students spend the next year
    completing it.
  3.  After the project is complete, students market
    their work through the appropriate channels.

During the free, three-day IPP Presentations event, over 60 students
will be making 10-minute presentations about their work to peers, industry and
the general public. Projects being presented include novels, documentaries and events, just to name a few.

Take a look at the IPP Presentations program to see a full listing of students and
the projects they are presenting.

Regional campus gets into the Olympic spirit

January 12, 2010

Hockey

When the Olympic torch passed through Winkler on January 7,
2010, students at the Red River College Winkler Campus got into the spirit
and participated in one of their own traditions — an annual hockey game.

This year’s installment was titled “The Torch Relay Hockey
Game” to commemorate the Olympic torch coming through Winkler.

The boot hockey game, which pits the staff, Dental Assisting
and Applied Counseling students against the Business Administration students,
is held on the campus parking lot and is a thee-year tradition for the staff
and students.

 “It’s a
friendly competition that gets the staff and students together,” says Isabel
Bright, Regional Manager for the RRC Winkler Campus.

This year, the all-girls team faced off against the mixed
Business Administration team, but despite having more players, the girl’s team
lost.

“It’s just for fun, but the business students don’t like to
lose,“ says Bright, joking about her team’s loss. “It’s only because the boys
played like boys that we lost.”

Red River College's Stevenson Campus played host to over 1,300 Winnipeggers from the business, labour, government and non-profit sectors on September 18th for the 6th Annual United Way of Winnipeg Plane Pull.

This event — which has teams competing against each other to see who can move a commercial aircraft  the fastest using just people power — is the kickoff for the United Way's 2009 Campaign.

This year's Campaign Chair is RRC President Dr. Jeff Zabudsky, who can be seen in this photo leading the Campaign Cabinet team in their plane pull attempt.

The fundraising goal for this year's United Way Campaign is $18,218,778. Zabudsky announced on Friday that the organization is already well on its way toward that target, as over $7 million has already been raised.

For more photos of the Plane Pull, see the United Way Facebook page or ChrisD.ca.

On Wednesday night, Manitoba’s best young athletes gathered at Red River College for a pep rally as a send off to the 2009 Canada Summer Games.

Over 300 athletes on Team Manitoba will compete against others from across the country in 18 events from August 15-29 in Prince Edward Island.

Throughout the pep rally, Ace Burpee kept the athletes pumped up as they got introduced and showed off their team cheers. Capping the night off, local magician Darcy Oake mesmerized the crowd with a high-energy magic show.

It was a great night for the athletes and coaches and Red River College wishes Team Manitoba the best in PEI.

Go Team Toba!
