Support Services Forum
Disturbing images of Anti-Black racism are dominating social media. We know this has had a profound impact on students who are experiencing a range of feelings, including hurt, confusion, and anger.
Students have reached out to ask for an opportunity to connect, talk and be heard about the profound impact of Anti-Black Racism on their lives. To support students at St. Paul Secondary School, Support Services will be hosting a forum on Monday October 26, 2020 at 3:00 pm.
The forum will be facilitated by Child and Youth Workers and Social Workers who are passionate, trained and eager to listen and respond to youth who have been impacted by Anti-Black Racism. The forum will not be recorded. School staff will not be present in an effort to maintain the utmost confidentiality. Students wishing to attend must register and provide contact information as a safety precaution. Please click https://forms.gle/HezmB9QwmTCrmcSbA to register.
