One of the students participating in the project, Grade 8 student Jayden Baker, said this initiative is about demonstrating acceptance.
“At our school, it’s important because we want to show people they belong at our school, they’re accepted and they don’t have to be someone they’re not.”
Those sentiments were echoed by the GSA Teacher Jason Howse, who noted people’s assumptions on people’s individual identities are ones based off pre-existing bias and that’s something that needs to change.
“We definitely have to move that bar and make some public statements around just the idea that everyone has their own right to identify just the way that they want.”
Howse also elaborated on the project, noting the donors, those who helped in making it come to fruition and saying it’s been something the community has received very well.
“We’ve had outstanding support all year long from our school division and our school admin.”
