Condemning threats against our Board Chair

At New Westminster Schools we welcome healthy debate and discussion on the important issues that affect our students, schools and community. It’s how we engage, grow and learn.

But there is zero tolerance or space for reactions that become abusive or threatening.

As a District we condemn the threats that were sent to the Chair of our Board of Education, following a motion that was passed at this week’s Education Policy and Planning Committee meeting. Gender and race-based threats and violence have no place in our schools or our community.
