Get Involved

As we focus on issues around diversity, equity and inclusion, we welcome a variety of perspectives, experiences and opinions. At Branksome, Social-Emotional Learning is one of our main priorities, and this includes “social awareness.” Social awareness is defined by The Collaborative for Academic Social and Emotional Learning (CASEL) as “the ability to take the perspective of an empathize with others, including those from diverse backgrounds and cultures.”

At our school, students and employees are encouraged to get involved to support one another to ensure that we are encouraging a diverse, equitable and inclusive environment. We have many opportunities to get involved, some of which are outlined below. We are also open to the creation and development of new clubs, groups and initiatives.

LAND ACKNOWLEDGMENT
We wish to acknowledge this land on which Branksome operates. For thousands of years, it has been the traditional land of the Huron-Wendat, the Seneca, and most recently, the Mississaugas of the Credit River. Today, this meeting place is still the home to many Indigenous peoples from across Turtle Island and we are grateful to have the opportunity to work and go to school on this land.

Setting the new standard for girls' education everywhere takes collective action. From all of us.
