BACS First Identity Day

It’s been a while since we held the event. I have referred to it since it has been completed, but it was pointed  out to me that I had never blogged about the actual day.

It took a bit of work to organize, but we are very glad we decided to implement this event. The students loved the opportunity to present themselves to the ‘world’! Most displays were student created, as was the expectation. Students were also very happy to talk about their displays to other students, staff members, parents and community members.

The day is a very powerful way to celebrate the uniqueness of each individual. We had great participation from all staff, and every student present had some sort of display. We conducted a survey after the day and found a lot of support, and received a few suggestions as to how to improve it. We will likely be doing one every other year.

We had a lot of help from Chris Wejr and the resources he provided. A big thank you to him and his (now former) school for their assistance!
