** Assembly has been rescheduled to the new year!!  Please look for an update in the new year about a new date and time that we will meet with Acacia
The bench will be moved outdoors to our newly developed green space so all can enjoy! 
Printed on the bench are words of encouragement and positive character traits such as; peace, belonging, celebrating, respect and trust.  With the bench comes an entire kit including a "friendship report" that can be used by teachers and students to report acts of kndness and friendship, and some colourful wristbands stamped with the words "I am Amazing" - this will be a critical piece in building our sense of community and understanding of the meaning behind the benches. 

We feel blessed to offer this to our students as a spot to build peace and peer relationships.
