Culturally Sustaining Schools

A workshop for Primary and Secondary Schools

We all learn best in environments that draw on our background strengths. This workshop supports school staff to develop a shared vision of teaching and learning that builds on student strengths, fosters positive identities, and sustains the diversity of cultures within the school. The session is co-facilitated by a CMY staff member and a young person of refugee or migrant background. Topics include:

  • The benefits of culturally sustaining schools
  • Concepts of culture and identity
  • Barriers to culturally sustaining schools
  • Empowering student, family and community voice
  • Engaging in cultural self-reflection
  • Steps for building a shared vision of teaching and learning

NOTE: An email with the Zoom link will be sent two days before the session.
