Upcoming Events

Inclusive Schools Week

Inclusive Schools Week - December 5th - December 9th

Inclusive Schools Week is an annual event, celebrated each year during the first full week in December. Since its inaugural celebration in 2001, Inclusive Schools Week has celebrated the progress that schools have made in providing a supportive and quality education to an increasingly diverse student population. This provides an important opportunity for educators, students and parents to discuss what else needs to be done in order to ensure that their schools continue to improve their ability to successfully educate all children. Students will discuss inclusion in their guidance lessons this week.
