Description

The Welcome Project

At this past Shared Learning, the Aboriginal Department hosted The Welcome Project. It has been offered on four occasions on Professional Days in the last 2 years.

We recognize that clerical often use Professional Days as a time to focus on important tasks at the school. Therefore, we will now offer two session during school time as well as at another ProD day.

The Welcome Project is intended to provide knowledge on the history of Aboriginal People in Canada as well as an understanding of the impact of that history on our Aboriginal students and families. We recognize the important role of the clerical staff in cultivating positive relationships in our schools with students and families and we thank you for being part of our efforts toward collective responsibility to provide a culturally safe environment for our students and their families.

We ask each clerical to register for one of the following sessions.

  1. Monday April 15 9:30-11 am
  2. Wednesday May 1 1:00-2:30 pm
  3. Friday, May 17 (ProD day) 8:30-10:00 am


If a casual is available, you can book a replacement. Alternately we ask the school organize internal coverage to ensure all clerical can attend this training in this school year. Clerical that have already attended, we thank you! You do not need to attend again, but you are welcome to join us for a refresher.
