Dougall Avenue Public School in Windsor is diligent about building positive communities. I’m sure the Greater Essex County District School Board is proud of the work that is being done at Dougall to grow respect and build an even more positive community. As part of Stand Up Now Productions, we were honoured to be part of the initiative at Dougall today, to teach and encourage students and staff to ‘Stand Up For Respect’ through three interactive assemblies.
If you want to help build your own positive community, just follow the lead of Dougall Public School and Principal Clayton Callow.
1. Diversity – Embrace the differences of the people you meet on a daily basis. Being open to the rich diversity of our people is a truly rewarding experience. Over 50 nations are represented at Dougall Avenue Public School.
2. Diligence – apply a constant and earnest effort in order to accomplish your goal of building a stronger and more vital community. Don’t let up!
3. Determination – Keep your focus in constant sight and stay on course with genuine effort.
As visitors today, it was apparent to us that students and staff take community building seriously.
Principal Clayton Callow said he was pleased with the ‘Stand Up For Respect’ assemblies and Child and Youth Worker, Noelle Papak was also very appreciative:
“All three assemblies were excellent. The students loved the set-up, the music and the DJ. The intermediate assembly really met the needs of our staff and students at Dougall. Bruce did a great job of giving our grade 7’s & 8’s a chance to speak and be heard in a diplomatic way!” (Noelle Papak, CYW, Dougall Ave PS)
