The Together, We’re Better contest is an annual contest inviting individual students to submit a story/poem or a class to submit a video expressing why class is better because students who have an intellectual/developmental disability are included and everyone is learning together. The intent is to have students and classes to begin thinking about inclusion and start a conversation about how a diverse class offers a better educational experience for all students.
This year marks the 7th year that Community Living has held the contest. Congratulations to Miss Aiken, Miss Belfour, Miss Heckman& Miss McLeod’s kindergarten class at Upper Thames Elementary School in Mitchell who were tied for 1st place in the province.
The Kindergarten class created a video to share why they believe their inclusive classroom and school is better is better for the success of all students.
