Team Education Visits NGDHS

From October 22nd-23rd, Team Education drove down to Kemptville to present to the grade 7 and 8 classes of North Grenville District High School. It was a team effort that reached just over 200 students and involved Cameron, Rhube, Maddie and Holly from the CCGSD and the organizing efforts of Melanie Fielding. We all had an amazing time and the Friday crew were lucky enough to join the teachers in their weekly pot-luck. This presentation was a long time in the works and discussions in the classroom were energetic and critical of representation within the media, specifically stereotypes of queer and trans characters. Students were very interested in the topic of Trans allyship and were engaged in working towards becoming a better ally through education and respecting confidentiality.
