Cannons Creek striving to be a place where everyone belongs..
At Cannons Creek we strive to be a place where everyone belongs. At Cannons Creek everyone matters, and we reject any form of discrimination and prejudice. We endeavour to ensure that respect, understanding and love is shown to every person in the Cannons’ family. At a time in our history where there has been so much loss, we extend our heartfelt sympathies to all who have lost loved ones, to all whose dignity and rights have been disregarded and disrespected, and we encourage all to remember that one person’s loss is everyone’s loss. Let us stand together and show compassion, respect and love to all. It is important that we raise children to understand both privilege and prejudice and to foster compassion and respect for all humanity. The following article written by Karen Young an Australian Psychologist, offers child appropriate guidance on how to start these conversations with children. https://www.heysigmund.com/how-to-talk-to-children-about-racism-prejudice-and-protests/
