Upper Canada District School Board
Continues #SEEMYVOICE Awareness Campaign

(Brockville) – The Upper Canada District School Board (UCDSB) continues its exciting campaign to highlight what our schools are doing to ensure students and staff feel a sense of belonging, said Lori Taylor, a vice-principal with the program department.

The #SEEMYVOICE Awareness Campaign , running until April 13, will highlight what UCDSB schools are doing to support anti-bullying, equity, inclusion, well-being and belonging in welcoming environments.

“We know there are amazing, inclusive activities and initiatives taking place in our schools each and every day,” said Taylor. “We want to share these initiatives to not only celebrate them, but provide students and staff with new ideas they can try at their schools.”

The campaign has been scheduled around two important days for inclusion in Canada Pink Shirt Day (February 24) and International Day of Pink (April 13).

The board is encouraging people to write small messages or take photos and videos of what their school is doing to support initiatives that make our schools safe, welcoming and accepting for all students. Participants are then asked to post them to their school’s Facebook or Twitter accounts with the #SEEMYVOICE hashtag!

Some of the initiatives schools may want to highlight in posts include:

· The WITS program

· School restorative programs

· Information on Gay Straight Alliances or Equity Clubs

· Link Crew and Web Leader activities

· Initiatives to embrace FNMI stories and culture

Posts will be collected and shared with UCDSB communities in hopes of inspiring further initiatives.
