Play it Fair! Community Action Projects

For the second year in a row, B.A.S.E. daycare students in the “Supporting Children as Leaders Through Play it Fair!” program identified an issue they would like to work on in their school community and used new leadership skills to complete their Play it Fair! Community Action Projects (CAPS).

These projects focused on creating iMovie trailers and photo slideshows that would encourage others in their daycare community to make the school environment more caring, inclusive and safe for all.

Some 200 B.A.S.E. students from Gerald McShane, Michelangelo International and John Caboto Academy created six community action projects with the help of nine Vincent Massey Collegiate high school students who led and mentored the students during the entire school year.

The English Montreal School Board’s Before and After School Enriched (B.A.S.E.) Daycare Program and Spiritual Care and Community Involvement Services came together with Equitas—the International Centre for Human Rights Education—to celebrate the “Supporting Children as Leaders Through Play it Fair!” program at the end of April which you read about in the Touching B.A.S.E. Spring 2017 as well as see a video here.
