Over the past two weeks, we have all been reminded of the impact racism and injustice have in our society, not only in the United States, but here in Canada.
The recent deaths resulting from police actions have brought into focus the reality that systemic racism exists, and the profound and tragic impact it has on the Black community. As a public education institution, we cannot remain silent.
To our students, our families, our staff, and our communities, NFSB acknowledges that Black lives matter.
We believe in diversity and inclusion. We understand and recognize that there is work to be done, and are committed to listening, responding and supporting our students, staff, families and communities. We will continue to teach our students how to think critically about civic matters and how to use their voices to effectuate change.
Through a collective effort and education, our hope is that we all move toward a society where no one is subjected to systemic racism and discrimination.
