SD83 SOGI Inclusive Training

A month ago we heard from a SOGI Sexual Health Support Teacher, Amy Witt, in SD83 who was going to be providing SOGI-inclusive training to administrators in the school district. She said how important visual signs of safety are for staff and students to feel like they are free to be themselves in their school. The message was received – we put together and had BCPVPA pride post-it notes printed and sent out to be distributed at the SOGI training.

Here are some photos of North Okanagan Shuswap BCPVPA members posing with the newly created, SOGI-inclusive BCPVPA Post-It Notes at their SOGI training event.
