“No Place For Hate is about a feeling that the students and staff create,” Friedlander said. “No Place For Hate means that everyone will feel safe and accepted when they walk in those doors.”
And as a reminder of the school’s acceptance of students, staff and visitors who enter the doors at the Horsham Road school, Friedlander presented faculty advisor Maya Goldberg with a banner boasting the high school’s commitment to diversity during this week’s school board meeting.
Goldberg said the high school, led by the No Place For Hate club, worked hard promoting diversity through three projects this school year.
The first, in which students and staff were asked to share insight about themselves to help recognize the value in differences among others, yielded responses that were “honest, touching and brave,” Goldberg said.
Another activity, the kindness campaign, helped create connections, she said.
“Diversity of our community is celebrated,” Goldberg said.
