Email from Principal King

Jer's Vision was so excited to be cc'ed on this email to fellow principals in Ottawa. Check out what he said about the workshop we did today at Ridgemont High School. Thanks for your kind words Mr King. 

Dear Colleagues,

I would like to take a moment to tell you about a fantastic presentation this morning at our school. Jeremy Dias–founder and director of Jer's Vision–presented at two assemblies (Grade 9-10 & 11-12) at Ridgemont this morning. For those of you who haven't heard Jeremy speak, he tells a passionate personal tale of bullying, homophobia, bias, racism and (in)tolerance. He does so powerfully but with humour and the students responded extremely positively to his message and approach. It was a message that a segment of our school's population needed to hear. If you are considering having an assembly on any of those topics, I would encourage you to contact him. 

Take care,

Richard King
Principal
Ridgemont High School
