Sean Aiken of "The One-Week Job Project" challenged DHS students to discover their passion.
Grade 11 and 12 DHS students were treated to a presentation today by Sean Aiken as part of his “Discover Your Passion” tour.
In 2007 Sean created the One-Week Job Project, which saw him work 52 jobs in 52 weeks in an effort to find his passion. After completing his job and raising $20,000 for charity, Sean decided that he needed to share his story and the lessons he learned along the way.
Sean’s presentation included a screening of the documentary that his friend Ian MacKenzie produced as he travelled with Sean on his yearlong journey. Sean spoke with students about the importance of not being afraid to try different things and following your passion.
Thanks for sharing your story with us, Sean!

Saturday night was the final show of a three night run for the DHS Drama production of “Dick Whittington”.
The cast and crew worked hard over many months to put together this entertaining pantomime.
This production had a little bit of something for everyone – rousing musical numbers, sword battles and many comedic touches.
Thanks to all those who worked to make this play a success. Dryden High School appreciates your efforts!
A group of DHS students were in Winnipeg last week to participate in the Model United Nations Assembly.
The Model United Nations Assembly, or MUNA, is a reproduction of the United Nations General Assembly. Approximately sixty to seventy UN member nations are represented in MUNA by two grade 11 and/or grade12 students. The Rotary Clubs from the United States and Canada select, sponsor and send students to Winnipeg every year to participate in MUNA.
From Dryden High School representing the United Kingdom were Shaundrei Espiritu, Jacob Gardam, and counsellor Natasha Lovenuk Markham. Representing China were Shadrielle Espiritu, Carley Eschbach and consellor Mr. Wilkinson.
Great work students, thanks for representing Dryden High School!
