Morning Announcements for April 6, 2023
Posted on 04/06/2023
I hope to see all interested book club members today at lunch in room 311. I won't keep you long but I miss your faces!

Ultimate frisbee team Tryouts today in the gym start at 230. Any questions please see Mr Norman in office 251 beside the forum at lunch. See you there!

Thank you to the grads who have taken advantage of the additional time to submit their grad quote for the yearbook. If you’re one of the 37 people with a blank space under your name you have until the end of lunch today to use the link e-mailed to you last week to enter your grad quote. Please be sure to include your first and last name, preferably in the correct box.
Thank you, from your yearbook staff.

Today to wrap up women’s week we are focusing on personal safety.

Approximately every 6 days, a woman in Canada is killed by her intimate partner. Rates of violence and harm for Indigenous women and girls is even higher. All violence is unacceptable, and all women and girls need to feel safe and protected in all the spaces we travel. If you see something, speak up! Become part of the solution. Come visit the foyer today at lunch to learn about how you can take your own personal safety into your own hands. Remember to respect, HER, protect HER and safety is every woman’s right always.

We also have a great lineup of speakers today in the library!

Check the schedule and ask your teacher to attend if you’re interested.

Feminism isn’t about making women strong, we already are. It’s about changing the way the world perceives feminine power.

Start with yourself and know that every time a woman stands up for herself, she stands up for all women. Let’s make everyday women’s day and continue to raise each other up and create the world we dream of.

Thank you for helping us celebrate the feminine this week and everyday at OSS.

Hey OSS the clothing swap is officially running! There is a table with all available clothes in the foyer, outside the library. Feel free to browse and take some new clothing!

This is a reminder that students are invited to swing by room 221 today at lunch to participate in a craft. Limited supplies. First come, first served. Hope to see you there!

Did you know that Forest Bathing is a form of therapy? In some countries such as Japan, doctors even write prescriptions for forest bathing! What a better way to bath in the forest than on a bike. If this sounds good to you ensure you attend our Introductory Mountain Bike Team meeting today at the beginning of lunch in room 303.
