Our Grade 4 students received a very special visit from Marvin Okello, Diversity and Inclusion Officer at the HFX Wanderers FC.
He shared many interesting stories and discussed the terms diversity, inclusion, and privilege, and how it relates to our School theme this year: Building an Ati-Racist Culture: Diversity, Equity, and Inclusion. It was a great opportunity for our students to learn how important it is to stand up for others and to be intentionally anti-racist. When asked about what they learned after Mr. Okello's visit, Bobby, one of our Grade 4 students, said “We are all the same, and we should treat each other the same.”
Big thanks to Mr. Okello for sharing some of his wisdom and experience with us.
