Unity Week is a week to reflect upon community building and kindness.
It was inspired from an anti-bullying campaign from a non-profit organization in the United States called Pacer. Throughout this week, we posed interesting discussion questions, watched inspiring videos, and challenged our thinking in order to empower our students to stand up for things they view as wrong. We had guest readers going into classrooms to read books on friendship, overcoming differences, standing up for others, as well as some biographical stories of figures who overcame adversity.
Each day of the week followed a different theme. Friday was our big “Unity Day” which we worked all week for. We showed our spirit as a community by uniting and wearing the color orange, which is the official color of the non-profit organization, Pacer. Thank you to all students and faculty for participating!
