It Starts With You: ETFO Information Session.

Thursday, November 24, 2011
Open to all ETFO members

The Elementary Teachers’ Federation of Ontario and White Ribbon Campaign
invite you to attend an information session to learn about grades 6 - 8 educational
resources and tools you can use in your school to promote gender equality and end
gender-based violence. These tools will be relevant for use with all students and will
include an emphasis on engaging boys and young men.

We will share lesson plans and activities to help you commemorate December 6,
Canada’s National Day of Remembrance and Action on Violence Against Women, and
the 22nd anniversary of the Montreal Massacre. These resources will help you fulfill
aspects of the curriculum related to promoting healthy relationships, preventing
harassment, and creating safer school environments. We will also provide
participants with an opportunity to share ideas and lessons learned in promoting
gender equality and ending gender-based violence in our schools.

When: Thursday, November 24, 2011
Time: 4:30 p.m. - 6:00 p.m.
Location: ETFO provincial office
480 University Avenue, 13th floor

Please mail or fax this form by Friday November 18th 2011 to register.

In divorce cases domestic violence and child abuse are all too often ignored. Read and sign the linked petition:
