Navigating the School System

August 15, 2021 @ 6:00 am

It takes a village to raise a child, and schools are one of the most important parts of any village. However, sometimes schools fall short in their attempts to meet our children’s needs.

That’s why we must work with community advocates and schools to help our children succeed in a safe, supportive environment.

In this webinar, parents, guardians and caregivers will learn:

  • How to navigate the school system to advocate more effectively for their children;
  • Who can support within schools;
  • What community supports are available to help.

The panel will feature the voices of Godlove Ngwafusi, Sabrina Teklab, Sadia Abdullahi and Rayan Haidar.

This webinar is intended for parents and guardians of racialized students. Organizations supporting racialized families are also welcome to attend.

The webinar will be delivered via Zoom video conferencing. Attendees will be emailed the Zoom link several hours before the start of the webinar to maintain a secure online space. This email will be sent to the address you registered with when you purchased your ticket through Eventbrite. If you have accessibility needs, please contact us directly.

    As a white grandmother of two black preschoolers, I’ve been interested and supporting P4D for a couple of years. In September it will be time for my elder grandson to start JK in Vanier. I wonder what advice you might have about choosing a school in that area that will be more consciously inclusive and anti-racist? My grandson has been in French daycare for 2 years, has a French speaking African-Canadian stepdad at home, but the rest of our family are unilingual (struggling to learn more French.)
    Is the Public or Catholic board in Vanier doing better with anti-racism? Are the French, French Immersion or English schools more genuinely welcoming? I see you have a wonderful new staff advocate Bernadette, and I would love it if she has time to advise us?
