Educate, Encourage and Empower

posted May 9, 2018, 3:43 AM by Angela Harrison

"Educate, Encourage, and Empower" brought Deaf students who communicate with American Sign Language (ASL) from both OCDSB and OCSB tp Lester B Pearson Catholic High School for a special event.   Presenters included Maria Bossio, Employment Counsellor from Canadian Hearing Society (CHS), Ottawa and Judy Settle, Josee Bower, and Susan Grace Eagles from Sign Language Interpreting Associates in Ottawa (SLIAO).   Topics included employment services, post-secondary opportunities for Deaf students from the perspective of accommodations (including interpreting, notetaking, etc.).  The day concluded with the student collaborating on the painting seen below.  Students traced and painted their hands along the edges of the canvas which surrounded a student selected message related to Deaf culture.

The paintings "YES  Deaf people can do anything", are the result of a collaborative activity between OCDSB and OCSB's Deaf students in grades seven and up who use American Sign Language (ASL).  

The paintings will find their home at each of the Board offices - the first artistic representation of Deaf ASL students.

On Monday, students and staff will wear the colour green to signify mental health awareness, and students in grades 7 and 8 will make stress balls in their classes. On Tuesday, students will discuss which strategies they use to beat stress. As well, students in grade 9 religion classes will be practising colouring in prayer, a strategy that incorporates prayer and drawing who is being prayed for during meditative music. As well, students in grade 10 will participate in a presentation from the Shepherds of Good Hope on homelessness and the many faces of mental illness. On Thursday, Youthnet, a mental health promotion program, will present to all grade 9 and 10 students in the learning commons, and students will create paper chains listing the names of their trusted adults.
