Friendship Day promoting inclusion

 

Friendship Circle launched a new initiative Friendship Day, aimed at promoting inclusion and friendship between typical and special needs's students in Montreal. The program achieves it's goal through bringing together classes from typical schools and special schools for interactive exciting activities. 

Too often, typical students have no interaction with peers who have special needs which unfortunately leads them to feel uncomfortable around those with special needs limiting their opportunity to appreciate the uniqueness of those who are different then them.  

Students of Summit School & Selwyn House School visited the Friendship Circle to participate in Friendship Day. The program focuses on discovering how much we all have in common as well as embracing and appreciating each student's uniqueness and differences.  Participants enjoyed pizza making, creating art with the friendship circle's talented art instructors, and activities promoting team building.
