Join us for the 2021 BCSSA Spring Forum, Imagining Schools as Places of Healing through Truth and Reconciliation with Kevin Lamoureux. In 2015, the Truth and Reconciliation Commission provided Canada with an opportunity for healing with the 94 Calls to Action they provided to the nation. These Calls to Action offer us hope, inspiration and motivation in describing how we, in our careers, can participate in the kind of change that will allow us to respond to the wreckage of that past, while creating a welcoming and just society for all Canadians. This session will focus on how those Calls to Action speak to the role of education, reimagining schools as places of healing. Where schools were once used as a weapon, today’s schools can ensure that students experience wellbeing, safety, and trauma-informed care.
This virtual conference will include plenary sessions as well as facilitated conversations in smaller groups.
