3. The WRDSB, in collaboration with the WCDSB, is bringing free Harmony Movement workshops to parents and caregivers of both boards.
What is Harmony movement?
“Harmony Movement provides interactive diversity and equity education programs that empower and inspire youth, educators and those in the social service sector to develop an equity lens, empathy, respect, and leadership skills as leaders for social change. We encourage critical thinking, courageous conversations and strategy building to address and take action against stereotypes, prejudice, discrimination, racism and other forms of oppression.” http://www.harmony.ca/about/
Please see the attached flyer for information about what will be offered in the workshops and how to register.
Harmony Movement has been involved in training with secondary students in our school board as well as many of our elementary and secondary educators.
This is a wonderful opportunity for parents and caregivers to learn about supporting a safe and inclusive environment at school.
