About the event
This year's conference will highlight the theme "Be The Story – A Focus on the Arts ". This year, the event will feature keynote speaker Sean Mauricette who will engage the audience with a presentation tailored to fit the conference’s theme. Followed by the keynote, DDSB Educators Dawn Samuel and Matthew Sinclair will run a parent workshop discussion titled “Navigating Pathways and Transitions”; where the focus will be on providing parents and guardians with vital information about accessing resources to support their children’s learning journeys. During that time, children will be engaged in arts-based workshops that encourage them to tell their stories and to use their voices to celebrate their unique and diverse identities.
