Last night, River East Transcona was presented with an award by Respect Group, an organization co-founded by Sheldon Kennedy and Wayne McNeil to prevent bullying, abuse, harassment, and discrimination (BAHD).
RETSD was the first school division in the province to partner with Respect Group and the first to have 100 per cent of its employees complete their certification for Respect In School, an online BAHD prevention training tool.
Sheldon Kennedy and Wayne McNeil sent a video message to share their thanks with the division for supporting safe and inclusive schools and work sites. Click on this link to see that video message: Thank You Message from Respect Group
