GLEN AMES PRIDE/DIVERSITY WALK
As a culmination of the wonderful work of our Mental Wellness Committee, Glen Ames students took part in our first ever Pride/Diversity Walk. This was a celebration of love, diversity and human rights – rights we are all granted despite race, gender, or sexual orientation. The message of inclusion was spread as each Grade 7 and 8 classroom walked with Glen Ames staff and parents throughout the Beach!
