Company: Houston Secondary School Administrator: Lyndsey Williams Date: February 22 - 26, 2021 Achievements: - Spreading awareness on an important social issue - Writing an article for our local News Paper - Planning and interacting with students Events that took place this week include: -Kindness Wall We made a wall that spells the word "Kind." It is a reasonably big wall, and we put it in the middle of school (By the office). By the wall, there are sticky notes with markers by it. The idea of the wall is to be an evolving piece of art by the HSS community. Students were encouraged to write anything kind on it. However, it started off blank. By the end of the week, there were plenty of kind messages written on the wall. Both students and staff wrote messages. -Bingo Kindness Bingo Kindness is a way to promote kindness towards others. There are bingo sheets (3 by 3) found at the front of the office. Each square has some tasks that require some act of kindness. Once the entire sheet is completed, there is a box at the front of the office where you can put your completed bingo card. At the end of the week, we will draw a winner. Their prize is free food at the foyer. -Concession All week at break, Leadership has been running a coffee shop. Drinks are pink-themed, and each drink has a kind message on it. -Kindness Cards Every student had the opportunity to send a free lollipop. We went around the entire school asking who they would want to give their lollipop to. Each lollipop also had a kind message on a card. -Mental Health Awareness and Cyber Bullying There is a bulletin board which can be found at the entrance of the school. On the board, there are messages spreading awareness of cyberbullying. In the washrooms, there are sticky notes which have kind messages written on them. -Pink Day (Anti-Bullying Day) Pink Shirt Day took place on Wednesday the 24th of February. Everyone on that day wore pink shirts to spread awareness on anti-bullying and to spread kindness. Students were encouraged to wear as much pink as they can. Because whoever had the best pink outfit would win a free lunch at the concession.

It includes facts, terminology, and general awareness. Completing any of these tasks could be entered into a draw box to given the chance to win some prizes and candy as an incentive to participate. -Guess the number of skittles in a jar -Skittle gram Skittles are a excellent representation of the rainbow. So for the entire week students could purchase skittle bags to give to their anyone of their liking as a gift. It has become a leadership 2021 tradition to create these “Candy Gram” messages for each of our events. There was also a jar that was filled to the top with skittles. Students could guess the number of skittles in the jar. At the end of the week, who ever had the closest guess to the number of skittles, they would win the entire jar. Monday -Trivia Kahoot Similar to our week long events. The purpose of this was to kick start pride week in a subtle way by informing students about the LGBTQ2+ community. It includes facts, terminology, and general awareness. Winners of this would also be given prizes. -Rainbow Dress up day Students were to dress in a colourful way to represent the rainbow. This included all colours of the rainbow. Tuesday -Tie Dye Leadership gave the students the opportunity to create their very own tie dye. This was done outside and free kits were given. Money students brought their own white shirts. -Jello Eating This is another student favourite tradition. Students would be gather in their house teams to compete with each other on who can eat Jello the fastest. There are four different house teams. The jello was specifically made to represent the rainbow. The team to the their jello the fastest would win a prize. Wednesday -Flag Race This was a game where students would have different LGBTQ2+ terms and its corresponding flags. Similar to jello eating, the house teams would come together as 4 different teams. The terms would be one side of the class room and the terms would be in the hands of the students. Each student one at a time would run and try to put the term on the correct flag. They would then run back so the next student would go. The winner of flag race would win a prize. -Hand Rainbow Painting This was an art related activity. The entire school would paint one of their hands the colour of the rainbow and use it to paint a rainbow. The final product was a larger rainbow with many different coloured hands. Thursday -Fashion Show (Express Yourself Day) The main event of the week. At 12:00 pm noon (Lunch), the entire school got together in the foyer to host a fashion show. A dozen group of students would go up to walk a run way and express there costume. The entire school cheered them on and it was quite honestly a wholesome event. Participants included both students and staff. The winners of the Fashion show would be award a trophy and crown -Rainbow Cake At the end of fashion show, rainbow cake was given out to all students and staff as a wrap up celebration. Friday -Paper Mask Identity This even will be hosted by the staff of HSS. Students will be encouraged to make their own masses. Their task is to create a make where the outside of the mask is what they show to the world, and on the inside of the mask is what they truly are. At this current time, there has been no winners decide on the week long events. The winners of the Fashion show are Naomi Tran, Kaitlyn Li and Lia Pottinger. The main goal with Pride Week was to spread awareness. It is the effort to make it a part of normal life. This is the first time that I have ever seen a school wide pride even throughout my 5 years being a student of HSS. There was obvious controversy around this topic, but it is important that we make that first leap towards a safer and equal future.

We both decided that it would be a perfect opportunity to film "University Videos" on campus. I film and edit the videos which are posted on a Youtube channel called "Marcel Productions." With only two videos so far, we have a total of over 7500 views. Making videos has been a great way to engage with students on campus and has provided us with a form of standing out amongst our peers. Markus also runs a podcast called "Marcel Mondays" and has posted content for almost two years. This fall, I was given the honour to co-host with Markus. I also have the responsibility to edit the audio as well.

Company: Houston Secondary School Administrator: Lyndsey Williams Date: January 2021 - June 2021 Achievements: - Understanding how to use technology - Engaging with the public - Creativity including both sets designing, ideas, and editing - Using social media to share and promote The Sty Guys Youtube Channel Due to COVID-19, my high school was unable to host assemblies. Due to this, I decided to create a news channel to provide the same service the assemblies did. However, it was be done through videos posted to Youtube. A group of 3 friends and I were all a part of the show. I would post videos weekly. These videos would report events and information the upcoming week and 2 or 3 other segments that consisted of small challenges and other events that would engage with the school community. The Youtube channel was called the "The Sty Guys" and produced close to 30 episodes. Not only would we post weekly news videos, but we also created the announcement videos for Wolverine of the Month. We would also do interviews with teachers. I was in charge of providing the equipment, coming up with the idea, promoting it on Instagram and Tik Tok, and editing. In the end, we were able to create this persona. The group had a reputation, and everybody was excited to see the next episode. By far one of my most creative projects!
