Great Plains College renews strategic alliance with Office of the Treaty Commissioner
WARMAN, SK – Great Plains College is proud to renew a strategic alliance with the Office of the Treaty Commissioner (OTC) that promises the two will continue to work together to educate on Treaties and Indigenous knowledge, and to promote an Indigenous-inclusive learning environment.
The original two-year partnership was made official in 2017, and in that time, the college and OTC have worked together to incorporate Indigenous perspectives, knowledge and reconciliation into the college’s six locations for both students and staff.
“The decision to formally partner with OTC has brought more awareness and greater educational opportunities to our college community; our staff are more educated, our students more aware and our communities more involved,” said David Keast, President & CEO at Great Plains College. “We look forward to building upon the foundation that has been set over the past two years to ensure all those connected to our college have a good understanding of treaties, the treaty relationship and reconciliation.”
Since 2017, OTC has provided presentations directly to Great Plains College students, delivered training sessions to staff at multiple locations and at an annual staff gathering, and supported the college in establishing an Indigenous Engagement Committee. OTC has also supported the college in hosting a number of reconciliation events, including the Walk for Reconciliation in Swift Current and a Rural Reconciliation event in Warman.
“Great Plains College has shown a commitment to including Indigenous perspectives and knowledge in their college culture, and we look forward to continuing our work together to promote reconciliation through education,” said Mary Culbertson, Treaty Commissioner of Saskatchewan.
OTC and Great Plains College will continue to work together to provide staff training sessions, student presentations and community events to promote dialogue, education and understanding of Treaties, the Treaty relationship and Reconciliation.

Halloween is the highlight of the year for many kids, and happy little goblins, witches and superheroes will be let loose around Warman this evening. They will be excited to show off their awesome costumes and get free candy - what’s better than that, really? And even though everyone loves a good scare on Halloween, not so when considering the safety of our kids. There are a few things we can remember to help everyone have a safe and enjoyable evening.
As a driver, please be extra cautious while kids are out Trick or Treating. Drive slowly, anticipate kids being everywhere and turn your headlights on earlier in the day. Kids in costumes can be more difficult to see. Stop ahead of an intersection to let people cross safely, and keep an eye out all along the street, especially at alleyways and when turning. Children are excited on Halloween and may move in unpredictable ways.
When heading out Trick or Treating, get a group together. It’s a lot of fun and a safer way to go. Younger children should be still accompanied by an adult (groups can make it more fun for the adults as well), but if older kids are heading out without an adult with them, have them share their planned route with their family, set agreed-to boundaries and be home on time.
Remember that, even though it’s Halloween, some people might not want to be disturbed. A good rule of thumb is to visit homes that have the outside light on – that's a sign the house is happy to receive Trick or Treaters. Don't persistently ring someone's doorbell, knock on their door or return to their house later. If they don't answer, it's best to move on.
Don't forget to stop in at the senior care homes, as they love to see the kids in their costumes!
If you’re staying home to hand out candy, enjoy all the excitement that Halloween brings to your door but be mindful that there may be kids with special needs, some of whom may be non-verbal. Be patient! Also, if you have some high school kids coming to your door asking for food donations, they are from Warman High School collecting items for the Warman Food Bank as part of the We Scare Hunger campaign. (Maybe they should get some candy, too!)
All in all, keep safety in mind, but the most important thing is to make memories with your family and friends, have some laughs and a lot of fun! Happy Halloween!

High school students in Warman will be out 'Trick or Treating' on Halloween this year for a good cause. They are participating in a campaign by Free The Children called "We Scare Hunger." They are looking for donations of any type of non-perishable food items instead of candy which they will pass on to St. John's Lutheran Church for the Warman Food Bank.
So if some Trick or Treaters come to your door who seem like they might be a little too old, keep an open mind and open your door to them. Support these students in their We Scare Hunger campaign by giving them a food donation if you can. The campaign is meant to raise awareness about hunger in our community.
The students participating from Warman High School thank you for your support!
