Everybody Has the Right
Four Kelvin scholars -- Hunter B, Jewell Z, Elijah D and Maria N -- were among student representatives from 70 schools in the Winnipeg School Division who joined Mayor Brian Bowman in a ceremony marking a week of celebration of Diversity, Inclusion, and Indigenous Awareness at St. John's High School this October.
Over 200 students gathered to discuss ways in which they can lead the way to a school, a community and a city that acknowledges and values equality and diversity. They practiced the roots of empathy by testing out a locally made game involving blindfolds and interlocking wooden pieces -- in which collaboration was key --. The youth delegates heard Mayor Bowman speak about the City's recent efforts to combat racism and promote tolerance and had a chance to meet him during the event. Students report back to the Mayor next January on how schools are tackling individual and systemic barriers to equality and inclusion.
Clubs that are dealing with human rights issues at Kelvin include HASTA (Hopeful, Aware Students Taking Action), Spectrum (Gay-Straight Alliance), Youth in Philanthropy, Indigenous Issues Reading Circle, Aboriginal Group, and Tipi Keepers. All students are invited to check out one or more of thèse initiatives; see the Office for details on meeting times and places.
