Macdonald Drive Junior High School  is proud to host a Gender and Sexuality Alliance (GSA) Conference for LGBTQ2S+ students and parents, and their friends from grades K to 12.

  • Date: May 4th, 2019

  • Time: 10:00 am to 2:30 pm for K-6, and to 7:30 pm for grades 7-12.

  • Place: Macdonald Drive Junior High School (110 Macdonald Dr, St.John’s)

  • Registration: grades K-6: $20; grades 7-12: $40 (including meals and afternoon snack).

  • Conference t-shirts can also be ordered for an extra $12

Age-appropriate programming for all will be offered within the times indicated. Students groups should be accompanied by a teacher sponsor from their school.

The conference will include a parent support session in the morning co-facilitated by Julie Temple Newhook and Sarah Pickett, both of Memorial University. Parents may attend the morning only (opening session and parent support session) at no cost, or the full day (above registration fee applies).

Registration now open at the following link. All participants, adults as well as students, are asked to register individually and indicate the name and email of their teacher sponsor. An accompanying parent/guardian can take the place of a teacher sponsor. Older students from schools who do not have a teacher able to accompany them may attend the conference unaccompanied, upon recommendation of a teacher.

We ask that registration fees be collected by the teacher sponsor and brought to the Registration Desk on the day of the conference in the form of a cheque to Macdonald Drive Junior High.
