This week, Fatemeh Anvari, a third grade teacher in Quebec was removed from her teaching job for wearing the hijab. Bill 21 was passed in Quebec in 2019, stipulating that all religious symbols are banned by government employees in positions of authority. Yesterday, City of Brampton’s special council passed a motion to have Canada’s Big Cities support Quebecers challenging Bill 21. Mayor Patrick Brown tweeted: Thank you Councillors for supporting my motion to contribute up to $100,000 to the legal challenge of Bill 21. We will not allow our Charter of Rights and Freedoms to be trampled on. As students we can show our support for those impacted by signing the petition on Change.org titled: Tell the Federal Government it's time to intervene on Bill 21 today to urge the federal government to step in. Find the link to the petition on our school’s website under morning announcements: https://chng.it/5K49BrYmDp. MSA members will also be distributing info cards with the QR Code to sign the petition at lunch today and a green ribbon to wear in order to spread awareness on the situation.

Everyone has the right to feel safe at school, in your community and online. If you feel like you are being bullied, talk to someone you trust: a friend, a teacher, a coach or a counsellor. Adult intervention stops bullying. Tell someone so they can help stop the harassment. You don’t have to deal with this alone! If you feel like you can’t report this out loud, you can use the HDSB Report Bullying tool on the Garth Webb website. Other ways to deal with bullying are to take away the bully’s power. Stand tall – even when you feel small. Smile – even when you want to cry. Act brave – even though you are scared.Hang out with friends who support you. Walk in groups, not by yourself. Enrol in activities or sports that you enjoy and make you feel good. You have human rights. You have dignity. You matter! Stand up for yourself without being aggressive – because using aggression almost always makes the problem worse. If you witness bullying, instead of ignoring it, tell a teacher, coach or counsellor, move toward or next to the victim to offer your support, use your voice and say “stop”, befriend the victim and lead the victim away from the situation. This is our call to action to every person in the Garth Webb school community. What are you doing to stop and prevent bullying from happening at Garth Webb? It begins with you...

Did you know…Reporting bullying is an effective way to stop the violence. Bullying is a relationship problem. It is about power and the abuse of power and it is incredibly difficult for individuals who are being victimized to remove themselves from this destructive relationship. Once a bullying relationship is established, attempts to make the bullying stop on their own are usually unsuccessful and may make the bullying worse. Adult intervention is required to correct the power imbalance. Students have to report the bullying to a responsible adult in order for an effective intervention to stop the bullying. We know that victimized individuals who told an adult about being bullied reported being less victimized the following year compared to students who did not report being bullied. When no one reports the bullying, students who bully feel they can carry on without consequences. Secrecy empowers children who bully. If you know something, you need to say something. What are you doing to stop and prevent bullying from happening at Garth Webb?

Holding parliamentary debates, easygoing civil discourse, and renowned keynote speakers, Model Parliament aims to find harmony and bipartisanship through a time of dissonance. We would love to see you there! Anyone can join, regardless of experience. Meet us after school on Mondays in room 2004! And Thursday’s at lunch!


Are you interested in business, sports, getting experience event planning, or becoming the next sports executive? The Hockey Advocacy Club is the place for you - we are a new club that will be putting together a virtual business competition for high school students, we are looking for interested students to help plan this event! All are welcome, and no experience is required. We will be hosting an information session this Wednesday at lunch in room 3012 - please reach out to Mr. Wilks if you have any questions.


Today is Pink Day! A reminder for classes that signed up for the outdoor activities to be on the field for your start time, as time for each class is limited. For remaining classes feel free to try any and all virtual options - we hope you all snap a picture by the end of today of your class wearing pink!

Did you know...Peers play a major role in bullying – by either escalating or stopping it. In about 85-88% of bullying incidents observed during the school day, peers were present and were watching the bullying happen. Peers spent 54% of the time watching the individual who was bullying, 21% of the time joining in and only 25% of the time watching the victimized individual. Adolescents are drawn to bullying episodes, even though the majority of individuals say they don't like to see another person being hurt. Individuals who are bystanders learn about the negative use of power and aggression in relationships. Overtime, bullying behaviour becomes "normalized". With a captive audience, a person who is bullying receives the attention of peers and this brings social status. Peer attention and status reinforces the bullying behaviour (making it more likely it will be repeated). Yet, when peers had the confidence and courage to intervene, the bullying ended within 10 seconds in the majority of playground episodes. What are you doing to stop and prevent bullying from happening at Garth Webb?


No student should worry about having essential necessities. That’s why Garth Webb will be holding a food drive called “Items for Impact” for a school in Brampton. Things like non-perishable food items, hygiene products, and clothes would be excellent. Attention teachers, watch out because if we hit our goal, the staff will participate in a broadcasted Hot Ones challenge where they must eat spicy chicken nuggets. The more donations, the more they will eat! Students, if you would like to see your teachers participate, make sure to donate! Drop off all items by the main office or in the bins near the washrooms from now until December 9th.

Sunday November 21st marks the beginning of Bullying Awareness and Prevention week. We, the school community at Garth Webb, do not condone bullying in any form. Bullying is something that evolves throughout one’s life, starting in childhood and can sometimes continue into adulthood. Bullying is a repeated and targeted aggression and does not need to be physical in order to be hurtful. Physical bullying may be more present during the elementary school years, however more covert forms such as social and cyber-bullying can take precedence during high school. While physical bullying causes harm to an individual’s body or property, verbal, social and cyberbullying cause psychological harm. Such offensive, degrading and rejecting behaviours undermine and destabilize an individual’s sense of themselves, of their place in the school, and of their place in the world. What are you doing to stop and prevent bullying from happening at Garth Webb?


Your Garth Webb Chargers Football Team are Champions after defeating the Milton District Mustangs on Friday 13-8 in a nail-biting final. Thank you to everyone who supported this memorable season!


If you are having your grad photo taken this week, please remember to arrive on time for your appointment and be completely ready to go in whatever you want to wear in your photo. This is the last week for grad photos so please book your appointment ASAP if you haven’t already. Thank you!

Good morning chargers. November 20th is the Transgender day of Rememberance. Every year, we remember and honour the trans and gender-diverse lives lost over the past year. This began in 1999, when Rita Hester, a 35 year old black transgender woman, was found murdered in her apartment a year prior. In 2020, 350 transgender people were killed. 22% of those were murdered in their own home. An EGALE Canada study from 2015 found that 87% of transgender youth felt unsafe in places at school. We humbly ask that students and staff take a minute to think about all transgender lives lost due to anti-trans violence, and be part of a community that makes all people feel safe. We request that everyone at GarthWebb be part of a community that makes everyone feel safe, and respected in their identity, without fear of discrimination.


Just a reminder to all students who have signed up for the math contest this week - it is on Wednesday at 2 pm in the library. Please check your school email for details. If you have any questions, please see Ms. Tan or Ms. Carmichael in the math office.


We are mindful that in our community some people are less fortunate. In keeping with that, the Youth in Action club will be collecting donations for an elementary school in need in Brampton and we invite you to participate. Between November 1st to December 9, please bring nonperishable food items, winter clothing, and personal hygiene products to deposit in the main office or a box located on each floor. Thank you in advance for your generosity and the people receiving our donations will be extremely grateful. Keep in mind that collecting items will result in watching your favorite teachers take on our very own Hot One's Challenge! Let’s do this Chargers!

Your Chargers Football Team had their Semi Final game this past Friday here at Garth Webb against Frank Hayden. With the game deadlocked in a zero-zero tie midway through the second quarter, the first touchdown scored in the game came from - you guessed it - the CHARGERS DEFENSE. Jack Graham recovers the fumble caused by Caleb Rasmussen to put the Chargers in the lead. With less than 3 minutes to go in the second quarter with the score 7-3, the next touchdown scored in the game came from - you guessed it again - the CHARGERS DEFENSE. Adam Taylor catches the tipped pass and takes it ALL THE WAY for the pick 6. But possibly the play of the game came on the point after attempt. A fumbled snap by the holder Ian Dittrich led to an improvised throw while being tackled to Jack Schiller, who looked up at the right time to catch the ball and dive into the endzone for the 2 point conversion! The Chargers had a 15-3 lead into halftime. In the second half, the CHARGERS OFFENSE stepped up and found their rhythm, controlling the rest of the game with effective run play and game management. Game ended with a Chargers win and are now in the CHAMPIONSHIP GAME this Friday vs. Milton. Support your team by wearing Black and Gold to school this Friday!


Hey Chargers, this is a reminder that the physics club is meeting at 3 p.m. today in room 3026
