BBMS Disability Awareness Day

A big congratulations to grade 9 BBMS student, Trinitey Douglas. Trinitey’s interactive day promoting disability awareness and engaging keynote speaker Ward Foley was a huge success. All students attended an assembly in the morning and participated in a variety of stations throughout the day. Students wore t-shirts and supported Triniety with assisting throughout the day and promoting conversations around disabilities and exceptionalities. Trinitey has worked with BBMS teachers, Megan Inglis and Rheanna Morris and SD 60 physiotherapist Lisa Boda to make this day a success. Thank-you all for your hard work.  A link is provided more with more information on Mr. Foley.
