In anticipation of Pink Shirt Day I added a new shelf to the Learning Commons to feature some of our SOGI resources including non-fiction, picture books and novels.
“SOGI-inclusive education is fundamentally about learning to treat each other with dignity and respect regardless of our differences. All students need to see themselves and their families reflected in lessons, language and practices. Like other forms of inclusion in schools, the goal of SOGI-inclusive education is for everyone to understand the diverse society that we live in and to feel safe, valued, and respected.” https://bc.sogieducation.org/sogi3
I used regular acrylic paint and just painted the edges of the shelf for a rainbow effect.
This simple sign was easy to add to the private washroom but can speak volumes.
Bright new stickers provided by the BCTF available for every classroom.
