Theme : Respect

A free tool to help build inclusion, understanding and community in your classroom or school. Recommended for intermediate and senior secondary Health, Career Education, Leadership and Social Studies.

“The resource approaches the topic of inclusiveness by providing students with an experiential awareness of the common ground that exists among all people.” (from the CSC recommendation)

The heart-warming and sometimes humorous “I Am…” video was prepared by people in L’Arche Cape Breton. The concept came from Cheryl Zinyk and Sol Express, an Arts group based at L’Arche Toronto. The resource consists of the 7:25 min. video and a Teacher’s Guide that includes art or journaling worksheets and meets universal learning goals.

You can download the Teacher’s Guide free and use the video available here or you can order a hard copy of the Kit from education@larche.ca.

Revelations of Abuse in Trosly, France

In a letter dated March 24, 2015, the Leaders of L’Arche International informed the communities of L’Arche around the world of the results of a canonical (Church) inquiry into accounts of sexual abuse by Père Thomas Philippe who was involved in the beginnings of the first community of L’Arche in Trosly. (Père Thomas died in 1993 so there was no trial.)
