Diversity & Inclusion
Student Diversity Leadership Council
St. Anne’s has a Student Diversity Leadership Council comprised of Middle School students and faculty advisors who joined together, starting in 2013, with the common goal of learning more about the similarities and differences of the people who make up our diverse community.
Council members hold meetings and attend workshops and conferences with the goal of furthering diversity education. Specific attitudes and areas of bias explored include ability, age, ethnicity, gender, race, religion, sexual orientation, and socio-economic status. The Council shares what they have learned through presentations, skits, events and conversation and invites our school community to join them.
A highlight since 2015-16 has been a Culture Fair hosted by the Diversity Council. Students and their parents are asked to share their families' cultural background, customs, history, and food by creating and presenting table top displays for this special event. All students, faculty, and parents are invited to attend the event with older students paired with their Connections buddies to experience and learn about other cultures.
