School Resource Officer Takes Part in Winnipeg School Division's Human Library Program

Cst. Mark Musick, one of our School Education Officers working in South Winnipeg, was among the people asked to take part in this project - serving as a "Human Book".

October 19, 2016 - Learning takes place in many forms and many places.

For students in Winnipeg School Division, October 18th lessons were shared with students (Grade 4-6) in the form of the Human Library program delivered at WSF Soccer North.

Cst. Mark Musick, one of our School Education Officers working in South Winnipeg, was among the people asked to take part in this project - serving as a "Human Book".

The aim of the Human Library is to help students consider identity from a variety of different lenses as they are developing their own sense of identity.  

As students spend this year learning to consider “others” while they also learn to consider “self”, they are also learning different ways to share their own story.

A number of people from all walks of life and all sorts of backgrounds, living and working in our community took part in the day sharing stories of:

  • Personal Identity
  • Cultural Identity
  • National Identity
  • Global Identity

By all accounts it was an amazing and we thank Winnipeg School Division for allowing us to be a part of this innovative learning experience.

A second session is planned for students in Grades 7-12 on October 25.
