-Grade 7 & 8s Get Real Presentation on November 15th: Get REAL is a Canadian non-profit organization whose mission is to combat 2SLGBTQ+ discrimination and bullying in schools, summer camps, and workplaces across Canada. We accomplish this by offering inclusivity workshops and by providing leadership development through our university chapter program and high school leadership program across North America. Our programming aims to break down prejudice, promote unity, and foster compassion in our world. We are growing every year, and have now worked with over 250,000 students across 8 provinces and 3 states, and had our work featured on CTV, Global News, and The National Post. We have built a team of young, passionate, relatable facilitators who perform to exceptional results and feedback. We are proud of the program we have built, and inspired by the students we work with.
– A Safety Reminder: When a student has come to school late, all parents and students MUST report to the office first to ensure that all students are accounted for.
