Acknowledging Diverse Identities - a Loop Breakfast Event

Fri 30 Nov, 7.30am - 9.00am

Wellington High School Library

Come along for breakfast with the Loop and hear about initiatives, programmes and ideas in three Wellington schools that focus on acknowledging diverse identities.  Ask questions, discuss, and learn from each other. Be encouraged in your efforts and take home some ideas to build on in your own school or classroom. This event is open to all staff of Loop schools. Attendance is free of charge.
At this session, we will hear from:
  • Wellington High School -  Responding to the Rainbow: this presentation will cover the use of inclusive language to cater to gender diverse classrooms, and strategies our school has implemented to support LGBTQ+ student diversity.
  • Wellington College - A snapshot of what we are currently doing to help support LGBTQ+ students at our school. There will be a chance to ask questions and share ideas afterwards which we greatly value as we are still relatively new to this.  We welcome open discussion and ideas from other schools.
  • Tawa College - The importance of data will be covered with regard to acknowledging diverse identities.  We will also explore the role of restorative practice, whether it be restorative chats, circles or conferences in recognising the stories behind our diverse backgrounds and approach to schooling.
