It’s been almost a year since I wrote my first blog post introducing the Bishop Carroll “WE DON’T SAY” campaign. Since then I am proud to say that both the Spectrum Club and hashtag #CarrollCulture have both taken off.
A few of the highlights of the following year included:
MAY 2015 – Encouragement during Testing
JUNE 2015 – Radom Acts of Carroll: Remind Account used to Share Daily Inspiration
OCT 2015- Spectrum, Who’s Frank and the Mental Wellness Teams Collaborated during the Healthy Active School Symposium.
NOV 2015- Spectrum Friendship Bracelet Bee
DEC 2015- BCHS Fair Trade Fair-Spectrum Button Campaign Earned $275 for Syrian Women-
FEB 2016- WE DON’T SAY 2.0
The original We Don’t Say Campaign was extremely popular in the Calgary Catholic School District and beyond. Our original posters were picked up by Duke University (the originators of the campaign) and shared on their facebook page. We have also had approximately 10 others school in the area approach us about running their own campaigns.
This year we wanted the campaign to continue to promote inclusivity. Therefore the Spectrum Club asked the Who’s Frank (antibullying team) and our Mental Wellness Teams to help us come up with common derogatory phrases that we have heard.
We then put an “all call” out to our student population and had students select the phrases they would like to model for.
The end result:
A fabulous product which can be shared on the net, in poster form and as part of the Bishop Carroll Colouring Book which 0ur student body is also in the process of producing.
So now for what you have been waiting for….
And Remember Your Language Matters.
