For their Pink Shirt week project, the classes decided to put up “Inclusion Trees” where each student received a leaf and on it had an opportunity to share one way that we can demonstrate kindness, appreciate diversity and include all the members of the school community. Below are some pictures from the beautiful display that's up in the lobby.
Today, students enjoyed a fun assembly about friendship, acts of kindness and inclusion. A big thank you to Mme Vasahlo and the Grade 7 Students Leaders who hosted the assembly, our Grade 2 students for their beautiful singing and Kathy Sing for putting together a superb friendship video that is also posted below.
To celebrate Pink Shirt Day, Tennyson's PIE (Partners for Inclusive Education) group invited all parents to their meeting for coffee, pie and the opportunity to learn more about what they do. As well as discovering that the PIE parents have a wealth of knowledge that they are delighted to share, it was exciting to learn that a lot of the initiatives that PIE parents are advocating for will benefit the entire student body. The next PIE meeting is scheduled for April 10; it is well worth attending.
