Tour for Humanity bus stops at Regi

March 11, 2016

Tour for Humanity bus.On March 9, students at Students watching video on humanity.Regiopolis-Notre Dame Catholic High School had the opportunity to visit the Tour for Humanity bus. The Tour for Humanity bus is a 30-seat classroom on wheels outfitted with floor-to-ceiling screens and a high-tech video system that along with a presenter delivered a serious message. Students listened to a presentation which demonstrated how horrific events that have happened throughout the past century can serve as lessons for all of us today about what's happening around us, whether that's on a global stage or right here at home. The students learned about the Holocaust and the treatment of native and Japanese people in Canada during the Second World War. Regi students also learned about Real-World Heroes including Martin Luther King Jr., Helen Keller, Simon Wiesenthal, Anne Frank, Mahatma Gandi and others. Students were told they can play a role in stopping hate crimes, particularly online. The message was simple: stop, block and tell – stop spreading tales or unflattering photos online, block those who are gossiping and tell an adult if things are getting out of hand. Students learned that even one small gesture can make a difference in their school and community. Our history isn't perfect but our future can be.
