During Pride Month, Ms Wilkinson, Erin Thornhill and Zion Mangadi were panelists in a webinar run by NAPTOSA Western Cape to discuss ways to support the rights of LGBTQ+ youth and teachers.
Ms Wilkinson, Erin Thornhill, and Zion Mangadi were joined by panelists from various organisations working in this field such as Gender Dynamix, Triangle Project, and the Desmond Tutu HIV Foundation as well as educators from other schools.
This webinar was aimed at assisting schools in navigating how they can create safe spaces for LGBTQ+ learners within schools, the importance of celebrating Pride Month, and how to best support and include LGBTQ+ people within school communities.
This experience was hugely beneficial to those involved and we hope that it can be used to assist educators and learners going forward to create spaces of acceptance, recognition, and belonging.
Thank you to Ms Wilkinson, Erin and Zion for representing our school and the LGBTQ+ community.
