Guysborough Academy GSA What is a GSA? • A GSA a safety zone that provides support while acting as a social group. It is a place where anyone who is either LGBT (lesbian, gay, bisexual, and transgender) or an ally can go and feel welcomed and safe from persecution. • A GSA also campaigns in the school to educate students and create awareness on LGBT issues to help create an open school, without discrimination or violence that is created with homophobia. Anti-bully Day • Each grade developed a poster about what they think about when they hear bullying. • We had representatives from the GSA helping each grade level. • A Pizza party was awarded to one class in senior high, junior high, and elementary who demonstrated a positive understanding about how to prevent bullying The posters were showcased outside of each classroom for parent teacher night, and for the school and public to admire Holiday Cheer • An variety concert the week before Christmas featuring local talent. • All proceeds went to the Guysborough and Area Food Bank.
