Welcome and Diversity at Gabrielle Roy Public Elementary School
June 18 @ 10:00 am
Since May 2018, the students of Gabrielle Roy, a Conseil des écoles publiques de l’Est de l’Ontario (CEPEO) public elementary school, have participated in the creation of a collective artwork (mural) for the school’s entrance. Senior management of the school decided to organize this art activity which uses the themes of diversity and inclusion and is led by a local artist. The project encourages students and teachers to be welcoming and open to the cultural diversity of the school’s students. This allows for easier and more successful inclusion and integration of their newcomer students. The mural will also will be shared on the school’s Facebook page and on the CEPEO’s blog and at the WOW launch on June 18.
