Focus Day on February 16, 2018

The STA and District are pleased to announce the theme of this year’s Focus Day which is: “The Heart of the Learner”. We are hoping you will consider joining us on Feb. 16th at North Surrey Secondary where we are pleased to welcome our keynote speaker Ivan Coyote. Ivan is a natural storyteller and brings humour, passion, and deep personal connection to stories of sexual orientation and gender identity in a manner that will resonate for us all. The keynote will not only be an entertaining and thought provoking start to the day, but it is also symbolic of our commitment to the importance of this topic in our daily work with students. The district is deeply committed to our vision of all schools being safe and caring places for all students, staff and community members. You will see our policy, which was co-written with all stakeholders, in action as we embrace the SOGI 123 curriculum and resources that support inclusive schools. We are certain you will enjoy the session and will indeed find it engaging.

See the website for more information and to complete your registration.

In addition to a keynote presentation you won’t want to miss, the day’s 2 sessions offer a smorgasbord of workshops, featuring sessions from the Surrey English Teachers’ Association and the Surrey Teacher-Librarians’ Association, you’ll be sure to find something useful and inspiring!
