EarthBites – Pocket Market Tomorrow, Thursday October 13th
UNESCO Community Brainstorm Launch – at the Pocket Market Tomorrow
Trafalgar Elementary has met the criteria to become a part of the UNESCO Associated Schools Project Network. We are one of three schools in British Columbia to be accorded this privilege. The United Nations Educational, Scientific and Cultural Organization is an intergovernmental organization. UNESCO’s purpose is to promote collaboration among nations through education, science and culture, in order to foster universal respect for justice, the rules of law, human rights and fundamental freedoms. The UNESCO Associated Schools Project Network began in 1953 and currently includes 10, 000 educational institutions in 181 countries. As one of the schools in the network we have the opportunity to work together with other schools and within our own school on innovative education initiatives focused on the pillars of Intercultural Learning, Peace, Human Rights and Democracy, Environmental Sustainability and UN World Concerns. In order to maintain our candidacy and move towards membership in the UNESCO Associated Schools Network, We will launch a new project “SE@T: Sustainability Education @ Trafalgar” as well as we will seek collaborative opportunities with another Canadian UNESCO school and a UNESCO school from another country. This year, we have decided as a staff to enrich the Aboriginal content in our curriculum as well as launch a new project extending on our work with the garden and sustainability education. Please swing by and share any goals, interests or experience you may have relating to these areas of focus at Trafalgar’s autumn pocket market.

PAN – Parent Advocacy Network for Public Education – Feedback Deadline October 12th
The following is an update from PAN
The Parent Advocacy Network for Public Education is a grassroots collective of parents from across Vancouver who share a commitment to public education. Our mission is to connect parents across the district to support one another in advocacy. The network enables us to share information and experiences, and to stand together in protecting public education.
This is the same ALL PARTY committee that has recommended increased public education funding and a review of the funding method for public education for two years in a row. Last year, concerns about public education was the top priority for British Columbians. Help to ensure this year is no different, in fact, assist them in giving even stronger recommendations for Budget 2017. The more voices heard by the SSC the better!
