Brebeuf CollegeBelonging TreeArtwork

​Our Art department in collaboration with our Chaplaincy department came up with the idea of a Belonging Tree which is rooted in Christ and nutures the concept of belonging, inclusion and equity in our school, in our families, parishes and communities.
 
The thumb print of every student will be part of our tree upon completion.
 
Many thanks to the Brebeuf College students in the photograph  Bernrick Ducut Grade 11, Humphrey Rolen Belande Grade 12 and Jordan Suredra Kumar Grade 11; they made our idea a reality.

Chaminade College - Ms. GagliardiPromise treeArtwork

God created the world but entrusts it to human beings. We are responsible for the protection and preservation of the environment. Students brainstormed how they can contribute to the ongoing creation of a good world for us to live in. Each student was responsible for creating a leaf for our tree and writing a measurable promise that they can do as individuals to protect the environment. 


This Promise Tree is a visual reminder each day -  we are like the leaves of the tree, together we not only make the tree complete, but we appreciate each other as part of the community as a whole.

At Mary Ward CSS, we are nurturing the concept of belonging, inclusion and equity by doing Culturally Relevant Education. Here is a recent 10-min clip, filmed last week, re: how students feel when they learn in a practicing culturally relevant educational community (curriculum, activities, environment, role models). At the end of the clip there is a quick recap of one word from each students about how they feel. You will hear the students say “belong”, “inclusive” “respected”, “valued”, etc…

Michael Power/St Joseph"Hallelujah"Video
MPSJ Special Strings and our dear friends from Special Ed combined to create this video for the CBC Music Class Challenge.  We chose Leonard Cohen's Hallelujah, a beautiful piece of music, but instead of just a performance video we thought we would include moments that highlight our friends from the Special Ed Department.  Our students enjoy giving mini performances, sometimes singing and playing for them.  These interactions bring such joy to everyone and through music all our students are better able to connect with one another.  In addition the spec ed students enjoy participating in phys ed and drama programs throughout the day.  Here is just a glimpse into life at MPSJ for some of our most endearing students.  We really put special thought and effort into creating this video and we would especially like to thank our photographer/videographers: Marco Ordonez, Erik Helmus, Roann Cordova, Guy De Mello, Elyce Alfonso, Anthony Owusu, and Nicholas Rich.  Additional thanks to Marco Ordonez, grade 12 comp tech student, who spent hours with the editting of the video.  Of a huge thank you to Ms. Fadi and all the wonderful people who work in the Resource department.  Great work everyone!​

St. Basil the GreatThematic Poster for the We Belong Board InitiativeArtwork

Attached is a picture of the Thematic Poster for the We Belong Board Initiative. My two Gr. 10 Religion Classes collaborated on this idea.  Each student chose either a scriptural passage which demonstrated 'belonging,' or an example of one of the Spiritual/Corporal Works of Mercy that they have demonstrated here at St. Basil the Great College. Each piece of work was then cut out in the shape of feathers to make Angel wings to show how although we are separate, collectivley we are ONE. Another student choose to write a poem which has been displayed on the silver wings of the Angel.

What's beautiful about this project is that everyday when the students walk into class they are reminded about the many influences in their lives that inspire their faith and learning. It also creates a space where students can celebrate their families and role models. With that said, what started off as a classroom initiative for a Saint Assignment has enamoured students around the school to bring in photos of their loves ones to add to it.
