Innisdale Celebrates Black History Month

We are excited to be celebrating Black History Month here at Innisdale throughout the month of February.  This year we are happy to welcome several special guests to our school.  These guests include a drumming session from the folks of Adinkra Farm, a local Afrocentric Community Building Organization; Shanicka "Shak" Edwards from Shak’s World, a local not for profit that supports mentorship and community engagement through sport; and writer, politician and current Chancellor of the University of Guelph Mary Anne Chambers who will be here to speak with our grade 11 and 12 students.  In addition to these guests a group of our students will be traveling to Georgian College to experience a presentation of “The Lost Heroes of Oro,” a theatre production, written and directed by Alinka Angelova, a local playwright and past student of Innisdale Secondary. Alinka discovered her love for the arts while participating in related courses while at Innisdale.  Throughout the month our announcement team will deliver daily messages celebrating the achievements of Black Canadians.  Our students will also participate in a Student Voice Whole School Virtual Assembly where students will share their talents, lived experiences and info about 'Black History in Canada" with the entire Innisdale student body.
