Manitoba’s Minister for Education, Cliff Cullen, has declared the month of February, Manitoba Inclusive Education Month.
The proclamation reinforces the province’s commitment to fostering inclusion for all.
“Inclusion is a way of thinking and acting that allows every individual to feel accepted, valued, and safe. An inclusive community consciously evolves to meet the changing needs of its members,” said Cliff Cullen, Manitoba’s Minister for Education.
In Pembina Trails, inclusion is something we seek to live out every day. Our inclusion policy recognizes that classrooms reflect the diversity of our communities and include a combination of student needs, learning styles, and cultural backgrounds.
Our educators aim to create communities where all students, including those with diverse needs and abilities, have a sense of personal belonging and achievement. The goal is to provide an environment where each student can develop their personal best in a setting that respects their abilities.
This month, let us take some time as a community to show appreciation for our staff, parents and guardians who collaborate to ensure every student can reach their full potential.
