Together We're Better Contest

February is Inclusive Education month! Children who learn together in school also learn to live well together as adults and are better able to create and participate in communities where everyone belongs.

Although learning looks different this year with physical distancing measures in place, including all students in every aspect of the school environment is more important than ever.
