In order to understand the students’ perspective when faced with learning or social-emotional challenges, the entire faculty of the RB Elementary School attended a fun-filled, interactive workshop given by the Student Support Services teachers, Ms. Beverly and Ms. Lama, and by the School Counselor, Ms. Ghania. The workshop “Feeling Like a Student” was a "hands on" and empathetic carousel simulation of what and how students with academic or socio-emotional difficulties may feel and behave. Teachers became students and were challenged to read and write like students with dyslexia or dyspraxia do!!! Moreover, teachers wore their "critical thinking hats" and had to identify the symptoms of students who suffer from anxiety, depression, ADHD and much more....

The counselor took a tour around all classes and engaged students in an activity to introduce herself and to explain her role at school. Students commented “I am lucky to have a school counselor at my school;” “Le rôle de la psychologue scolaire est très important parce qu’elle nous aide à résoudre nos gros problèmes à l’école ou/et à la maison;” “I learned that Ms. Ghania will have to ask for our permission before sharing our secrets”.
