"On Monday, May 1st, two intermediate students, Maya K. and Sayna S. attended Our Voice Fusion 2017 Conference with Ms. Porat. We evaluated student trustees that will provide York Region students voice on behalf of the York Region District School Board. We heard each individual's campaign speeches on how they would approach delicate topics in schools and their response to our questions regarding our school challenges. Through this, we voted for two nominees that are best qualified to assist students needs in the district.
In addition we participated in two activities regarding internet safety with a Vaughan police officer, and a mindfulness class activity. Overall this day was educational and fun. We learned to follow our passions, to never give up or we will never know what we can really do. We learnt that we need to celebrate diversity and differences in our school community, and that success takes many forms, we just need to find our own success. Both Maya and I appreciated the opportunity to attend this conference and represent our school Westminster."
We look forward to our students sharing their learning with the school and continuing our work to promote a positive school climate and support the social and emotional well-being of our students.
