Come and join the East&West Dialogue at the East and West Learning Club, and walk home with insiders’ tips to the issues in question!
The East&West Dialogue is a special event we organize once a month to bring in the perspectives, experience and expertise of local people, and to promote mutual understanding between communities of different cultural backgrounds. This month we proudly present Mr. Terry Singh and Mr. Rawl Chan as our guest speakers:
Terry has served 14 years as Principal in five different schools (K-5, K-8, gr. 7-8) in Scarborough/Etobicoke/North York/Toronto. He has taught in elementary and secondary schools and cares deeply about the role equity/inclusion and parent/community engagement plays in improving the lives of students and families. Terry’s daughter attended TDSB schools.
Rawl has in his 17th year of teaching, 10 of which has been working with students with Special Needs. He taught in Scarborough schools, teaching grades K-8, along with teaching in Intensive Support Programs for students with severe learning challenges. Currently he is at Henry Kelsey Sr PS teaching the Autism program. Rawl is very involved in school activities, such as Sports teams and other special interest clubs.
