Father Henri Nouwen staff recognized for Tribes Training

Staff at Father Henri Nouwen Catholic Elementary School were recently honoured because 100 per cent of the Richmond Hill’s school staff are certified in Tribes training.

YCDSB Tribes Trainers, Donna McCowell and Elaine Martin recently visited the school to congratulate the staff as being a Distinctive Tribes School that is committed to creating safe, caring, and collaborative environments in which students feel accepted and safe. The teachers and administrators in a Tribes school work together in supportive groups to enhance the school’s inclusive and caring environment, as they too enjoy the participatory democratic process and creative collegiality that the Tribes program promotes.
