HIGH SCHOOL CHAPEL
Tuesday: The Black Culture Club
led chapel today. The theme was Bridge Builders. Ms. McNeil asked questions to a student panel. It was great to hear students give their perspectives on race and being a bridge builder. Some of the points of discussion were “what do you love about your culture?”, “describe a time when someone made a wrong assumption about your culture” and “why does building friendships with people of a different race matter so much?”.
We also watched a great video, We All Bleed the Same:
Thursday: With the teachers seated behind her, Ms. McNeil shared a spoken word piece she had written. It was filled with poetry, emotion and beautiful singing. The chapel concluded with students invited to the stage to write how they can be bridge builders. What a wonderful sight as students in unity came forward to write notes and display them.
