Rising Above – May 3rd

We are excited to announce that all students and teachers will be attending a film at Cineplex Theaters (Avalon Mall) on Thursday morning, May 3.

Rising Above is an engaging 90-minute documentary film by YLCC Media that sheds light on the issue of bullying within our schools and communities. It tells the stories of ten Canadians who have either been the targets of bullying or a person who bullied others in the past — their stories of hope, growth and courage in overcoming and rising above the challenges they faced.

This film ties into our school district’s Safe & Caring Schools Policy and helps us to work toward our goals related to bullying.

The cost of this film and transportation to the event is $10 per student. It is highly subsidized by the Canadian Red Cross. We are asking that you send in this fee and the completed permission form as soon as possible. Cineplex is requiring numbers before Easter break.

Thank you for your continued support!
