What Has POPDHH Been Up To?

Optimist Contest – Trophy Presentation: This year’s winner Shea Jackson, holding the official trophy (and a small POPDHH swag bag), with a helping hand of his schoolmates and the proud TDHH Rhena Tevendale from North Vancouver School District, which also produced the second place winner Leona Cormack. Once again, congratulations to all!

BC CAISE Spring Conference – May 20th and 21st  – Terry and Tamara joined the virtual conference “Leading with Compassion and Care: Supporting the Mental Health and Well-being of All Learners” that included several featured guest speakers, an update from the BC Ministry of Education’s Learning Division and closing remarks from the Hon. Jennifer Whiteside, Minister of Education.

TDHH Mentorship May 26th – 28th – The year one wrapped up with Social Emotional Learning as a theme. Guest presenters and workshops included: EASE training follow up by Cheryl Hofweber, Deaf Wellbeing Program update by Alison Nutt, and Improving Outcomes for DHH Students in General Education Classrooms by Maryam Salehomoum, Ph.D., CCC-SLP, Emerson College.

Judging by this screen shot, the group found the sessions quite enjoyable:

Picture a Scientist June 1st – 4th – movie screening and panel discussion , sponsored by POPDHH and Burnaby School District. Close to 400 students in grades 9 to 12 across the province, including DHH students in school districts and the BCSD watched the film and 100 students joined the panel with guests – 4 women scientists, alumni of local school districts.

Zoom Camps – June 8th and 9th. POPDHH hosted two regional camps virtually, inspired by the coveted DYT’s Camp in a Box: Sand for students in grades K – 3, and Art, for students in grades 4 to 7. Students from 20 school districts spanning 4 regions (Vancouver Island, Kootenays, Okanagan/Interior and North)  participated: 50 joined the Sand and 24 the Art activity.

And this is how much fun they had:
