EB Chandler & Uniacke District welcomed special guests!

In the past week, schools across CCRSB have welcomed experts on healthy relationships and proactive strategies to discourage bullying in schools.  

EB Chandler Junior High got moving with Globe Trotters Eric and Ming in a “bench the bully” assembly. The staff and students were active participants in a 90 minute, fun filled assembly where the message was clear…everyone is important and everyone is accepted for who they are. The message to not take oneself too seriously and to pave the way for others came through loud and clear.  Thank you Eric and Ming and all the students who let down their guards to engage with the Globe Trotters to send a powerful message.

The students and staff of Uniacke District School were blown away by the motivational presentation SAIDAT, Music, Movement and Motivation.  Saidat Vandenberg performed three separate action packed assemblies and hip hop demonstrations for the students in Primary through nine.  In Saidat’s high energy show, ‘Train Your Brain’, she encouraged students to believe that they can learn so much if they put their minds to it.   In Saidat’s ‘You’re Worth It’ show students learn to actively nourish mental health and gave students keys to learning how adapt a growth mindset.
