As part of our community flag campaign, the Boyd Equity and Diversity Student Committee has purchased 50 'Every Child Matters' flags for each school in our district in an effort to further acknowledge the tragic history of the residential school system.
We are looking forward to distributing the flags in partnership with the Richmond School District leadership team for next National Day for Truth and Reconciliation!
In response to the invasion of Ukraine, the 2022 Social Justice class committed itself to supporting relief efforts for Ukrainian families and displaced Ukrainians in B.C. Through weekly bake sales, this year's class was able to raise $1,200.
A special thanks to all the students who dedicated themselves whole-heartedly to this cause, and to Father Mykhailo Ozorovych for offering his personal insights, connections and perspective on the war and refugee crisis, and on how to best contribute. You can listen to Kelvin and Justin's interview with Father Ozorovych under the 'Our Podcast' tab.
