The ETFO Children’s Union School was a cross service initiative introduced at the 2016 Annual Meeting. Staff from Professional Learning/Curriculum Services, Professional Relations Services and Equity and Women’s Services worked together to create a fun, interactive program.
Through a variety of hands on activities children, aged 8-12 years, had an opportunity to gain an understanding of equity, social justice and the negotiation process. The mini-program was held on two mornings during the annual meeting.
The goal of Union School is to help the children participating to make sense of what their families do at the ETFO Annual Meeting and hopefully inspire them on a journey towards union activism.
