Event description

Description

This PRO Grant presentation is a joint school council collaboration by White Oaks Secondary School and W.H Morden Public School.


This interactive workshop will explore the fundamental right of students to learn in a bias-free environment and the role that educators/parents/guardians should play in fostering equitable classrooms and schools. There will be a focus on Indigenous history and pedagogy as well as on deconstructing personal bias around human identity. The presentation will use children's stories and a song entitled, "Unique: I want you to be nice to me". For more info visit: www.chrisdsouza.ca
