Social Justice Day at Hants East
Students at Hants East Rural High School participated in their first-ever Social Justice Day on April 28th. Actor, dancer, writer, musician, and film producer Cory Bowles was the featured speaker for two school-wide assemblies. Students also attended three of 17 concurrent workshops dealing with issues of social justice, including CCRSB’s Social Justice Pillars of Race, Gender, Sexual Orientation, Class, and Abilities. Other sessions examined social justice in a more global context. Students and staff are thankful to all the special guests that lent their time, talents and passion to the day!
