Good Shepherd School


Good Shepherd School hosted a multicultural fair this week. Its intention was to promote a greater awareness and appreciation among its students for the diverse cultures represented in their school and community. In turn, the school was hoping that this event would promote a greater respect for cultural differences. The event engaged students in discussions within their own families about their cultural and ethnic background. Over 33 countries were represented! In addition to the educational aspect of this event, the school also hosted a multicultural celebration: dance, music, and healthy, tasty food options that are outside the normal scope of the students’ daily lives.

St. Mary's School

The fight against bullying is still a hot topic. In recent weeks, there has been an open dialogue in class to give our students a chance to share what they have experienced in our school. From these discussions, this video was born where the young people could explain the testimonies heard in class. The parents' collaboration demonstrates and encourages students that our entire community is united so that our school is recognized as a place where EVERYONE can feel safe.
There is still a lot of work to be done, but our initiative is a step in the right direction.
Following our 3 Cheers Assembly, students will now highlight the positive actions taken onto pink squares. These squares will then form a mosaic of the beautiful actions and efforts made by our community to support the victims who may sometimes feel very alone. This mosaic will be on display in the entrance hall of our school.

One voice, one team





Centennial Regional High School

Pink Shirt Day began in Nova Scotia about 10 years ago when a high-school student was bullied for wearing a pink shirt. Since then, Pink Shirt Day is a day to show that you do not accept bullying of any kind, but especially bullying someone for his or her sexuality! The Gay-Straight Alliance of CRHS had their third successful campaign and raised money for Project 10, a support group for LGBTQ teenagers in Montreal.


School Transportation Safety


As part of the School Transportation Safety Campaign "Did you see me?”, Riverside School Board Transportation Department organized a great awareness event. More than 40 students, from nine participating elementary schools, walked the streets of Greenfield Park around St. Jude School with Bubusse, the Bus Carriers Federation’s mascot. Participating students were selected following a drawing contest that focused on school bus safety. The winning students also received a gift (books!) and a hot chocolate ! A big thank you to the dozens of volunteers and bus carriers for their invaluable help! Police officers from the agglomeration of Longueuil were on site to ensure the safety of students, volunteers, staff and carriers.
