VESTA invites teachers to come to Thornton Park on Friday December 6th at 4:30 to commemorate the National Day of Remembrance and Action on Violence Against Women.

In addition, VESTA policy (32.A.6) states that teachers be encouraged to observe with their students, on December 6, a minute of silence in memory of the fourteen women murdered at Montreal Polytechnique and for all women and girls who are victims of violence. The BCTF Status of Women Committee has many resources to help with teaching about violence against women.
