ISABC Public Square #StudentVoice
Limited Capacity seats available

This session is a follow-up on last year's successful inclusion of students as critical partners in our collaborative conversations on 21C teaching, learning and community engagement. The core participants for this session will be student leaders drawn from ISABC schools with the support of the Service Learning & Student Engagement Educators (SEED) group. Students are challenged to develop a preliminary action plan on how to build stronger community and sustainable connections amongst ISABC schools, particularly in the realm of community engagement and service. The goal is to leave the forum with a student action-plan across schools that goes beyond last year's foundations. This plan will be presented to SEED members and others who are interested at a 'working lunch' that day from 12.40-1.30pm.

The session coordinated by ISABC school representatives Antony Wilson (Mulgrave School), Carrie Hughes-Grant (Meadowridge), Daryl Weaver (Southridge) and Rick Campanella (Stratford Hall) and others. We hope this developing ISABC #studentvoice forum will shape our 'other' conversations on what matters in our schools and beyond.
