PVNC schools to celebrate Safe and Caring Schools Week
The theme “I Belong” will be the overarching guide to this year’s Safe and Caring Schools Week, running Nov. 21 to 25.
This theme supports the Board’s work in moving towards inclusive environments where all students and staff can see themselves and truly feel a sense of belonging.
We are called to love and celebrate one another, just as God loves and celebrates each one of us.
We honour the inherent dignity of every person by treating one another with care, compassion, and respect.
It is God’s desire for us to be inclusive of our brothers and sisters at all times.
“Therefore welcome one another as Christ has welcomed you, for the glory of God.” [Romans 15:7]
