We are also inviting stories and presentations from student leaders and student leadership groups on topics such as those listed above or stories of being change-makers in creating healthy, safe and welcoming school communities.
Past presentations have included students sharing their community projects, like Lacombe High School's EcoVision and The Joy4All Project from Calgary. Students serve as change-makers through peer-to-peer interactions and are the heart of taking a CSH approach. Their voices, leadership, and enthusiasm create increased engagement. Student submissions must have a teacher/parent champion with them during the conference. Five student-led sessions will be selected to receive travel/registration support of $500.
