Near North District School Board
The Near North District School Board wishes to extend congratulations to the students selected as ‘Students Who Make a Difference.’ Students have been selected from three elementary schools and at secondary level in celebration of positive role models who demonstrate leadership in social justice issues. The Near North District School Board is taking part in the initiative through anti-racism education, events in the schools and an anti-racism poster contest.
Students will be recognized at the 19th Annual Evening of Applause on Wednesday, March 21, 2007, as part of the International Day for the Elimination of Racial Discrimination. Members of the public and media are encouraged to attend the ‘Evening of Applause’ at 6:30 p.m. at West Ferris Secondary School.
Students who have made a difference will be recognized for their contributions by Colin Vickers, Director of Education and Superintendents of Schools and Program, Patrick Bocking and Heli Vail at the ‘Evening of Applause.’
