#OCSB MTHS to put on play mocking nuns

 

“A good tree cannot bear bad fruit, and a bad tree cannot bear good fruit.”

Sister Act creator is a BAD TREE! But Mother Teresa School will be putting on the play which is so disrespectful of nuns.

Read the original writer’s disgusting piece about nuns and the Catholic Church

Rudnick said in his article, and on the magazine’s podcast, that his goal in creating “Sister Act” was to “subvert the Catholic Church.” As only he can explain, “The script called for actresses of all shapes and ages, although the Disney executives still squabbled over which nuns should be ‘f***able.’”

 

Rudnick:
“I wanted “Sister Act” to be a satire of sugary family perennials like “The Sound of Music,” “The Singing Nun,” “The Flying Nun,” and such parochial-school romps as “The Trouble with Angels” and its sequel, “Where Angels Go… Trouble Follows.” These mainstream nun movies were full of sage, older nuns who, after offering their wisdom, would die serenely off camera; with younger guitar-strumming “rebel” nuns, sometimes riding Vespas; and with feisty novices, who either had to be broken, via missionary work, or farmed out to the von Trapp compound… My plan was for “Sister Act” to subvert this sort of prissy up-lift. I wanted out heroine, Terri Van Cartier [sic], to embody raunch, sex, and the unstoppable gospel of cheap show-biz. It would be pop verses Pope; and pop in a barrage of sequins, wisecracks, and Marlboro Lights, would win.”

This blog prefers to SUPPORT nuns, not mock them

Will the students of MTHS have more or less respect for the Catholic Faith after this play? This blog believes there are much better musicals and comedies than could have been chosen!

#OCSB #TCDSB . More on Sex Ed in Teachers’ Colleges

This is the sort of stuff being discussed this week at the UWO Western Teachers College. This is for policy makers, teachers, Faculty of Education students, etc etc.

This is the context in which the Wynne/Scandals/BenLevin sex ed will be taught to our children!!

Moving Forward: Identities, sexting, schooled bodies, and the curriculum that frames us

Title: The Politics of Pleasure in Sexuality EducationThe inclusion of pleasure and desire have been important in the vision for sexuality education for the past 20 years (Fine, 1988; Kehily, 2002; Rasmussen, Rofes, Talburt, 2004; Allen, Rasmussen and Quinlivan, 2014). This Keynote talk continues this conversation by exploring young people’s interest and ideas about incorporating pleasure within sexuality education at school. Drawing on data from focus groups and survey methods young people highlight some of the challenges facing this topic as a curricula component. Participants felt sexual pleasure was relevant to their lives and displayed a significant interest in receiving this information provided it was delivered in a particular format. Responses provide insights into some of the politics which surround the inclusion of pleasure in sexuality education. Taking into account young people’s perspectives this paper encourages an acknowledgement and interrogation of these politics and their implications for what gets ‘taught’ as pleasure in sexuality programmes.

The content of sexuality education provision is a contested topic internationally, with various sectors of the government, NGO’s, parents, community groups, teachers, schools and young people often in sharp disagreement about what sexuality education should aim to cover and do. This international level of contestation is apparent in recent curricular developments to the Health and Physical Education curriculum (2015) in Ontario, Canada and has provoked a public outcry and in some cases, rallies to protest the revisions to the curriculum. In light of a public discomfort toward these curriculum revisions, and in relation to wider educational and sexuality debates that may
shed light on recent events, the organizers (Dr. Michael Kehler-Western University, Ontario, Canada and Dr. Jessica Ringrose-University College London, Institute of Education, London, UK) are hosting an International Symposium:
Moving Forward, at the Faculty of Education, London, Ontario, Canada, May 22-25, 2016.
In the upcoming International Symposium researchers, teachers, and social agencies are invited to attend and submit proposals in a research-based series of conversations about the experiences of designing, delivering, navigating, responding to, revising, and researching sexualities and sexuality education curriculum.
Compulsory heterosexuality as it has been termed is often the unspoken backdrop of sex education curriculum based on reducing ‘parts and plumbing’ ‘risks’ around reproduction and disease. In this forum we, like others, challenge this configuration and seek contributions from those exploring the processes and challenges of delivering sexuality education curriculum that effectively includes for example, LGBTQI issues. We invite contributions that consider the wider range of topics that relate to and shape the content, delivery and nature of sexuality education in schools in
the context of the current awareness of non-binary gender and widespread transformations of understandings of sexualities and sexual cultures.
This event acknowledges youth identities and the ‘missing discourse of desire’ (particularly for girls) (Fine, 1998).
We seek to open up a dialogue that “constitutes young people as sexual subjects with the capacity for, and right to, positive experiences of sexual desire and pleasure” (Allen, 2004, p. 152)
We invite abstract submissions that address as starting points this range of suggested topics on sexuality education, although topics are not limited to this brief list:
Feminism and gender equality in sexuality education -Health and Physical Education, pedagogy
-Rape culture and lad culture -Producing/disrupting/interrogating
heteronormativity across youth throughcurricula
-Dress codes and sexual harassment in school policy and practice -Schools as site for the (re)production of sexual identities
-LGBTQI and non-binary identities, Embodiment and experiencesat school
-Sexting, technology and youth identities
-Sexuality education and non-binary sex/gender -Sexual surveillance and violence of/against youth
-Digital technology and youth sexual cultures -Sexual subjectivities, religion, morality
-Youth voice, desire and pleasure –The “myth of childhood innocence”
-Adolescent, youth bodies, school bodies, body image -Negotiated parental, familial, school responsibilities of sexuality education
-Bodies and the curriculum that names and frames youth
-Teacher’s challenges with curriculum contentand delivery at school
-Competing/antagonistic discourses of youth sexual identities

#OCSB #TCDSB Children to learn about “people with penises”

Remember, the ICE resources (as bad as they are), only provide a little commentary and supplementary material to the basic Wynne/Scandals/BenLevin sex ed. OPHEA is the main provider of actual lesson plans. The “catholic” school boards are paying members of OPHEA.

Apparently, saying boys and girls is too “gendered”. The children will learn about people with penises and people with vaginas! Grade 5s!

This is what happens when you teach this stuff: Video: Can this 5’9″ white guy be a 6’5″ Chinese woman?  A 7yo, 6’5” Chinese woman!!

UPDATE #Ottnews #OCSB CCD to NOT host pro-gay marriage priest

UPDATE OCT 5:

Father Greg Boyle has been replaced by Steve Pemberton

http://www.achanceintheworld.org/about-us-steve-pemberton/#motiv

Why was Boyle replaced? Who made the decision? Why the secrecy? How much is Pemberton costing?

 

=========================================

The poor history of the OCSB “Christian” community day continues. In past years, they have spend $50-70K on a half day conference (ends around 1:15pm on a Friday) and they always have a dissident speaker.

This fall (2016), it is will be Fr Greg Boyle, who supports so-called gay marriage, gay adoption and “women priests” (infallibly declared impossible by the Church)

#OCSB #ottnews NDHS Basketball Academy and the Catholic Faith

Looks like the OCSB is heading down the route of pseudo-Catholic basketball colleges “in the Jesuit tradition” like Gonzaga and Georgetown and USF in the USA.

Jesuit Basketball Colleges link

They are partnering with a $10,000/yr basketball academy to being it to Notre Dame NDHS. How many of the academy kids will be Catholic? 10%? 20% Are ANY of the Academy execs practising Catholics? Why did the OCSB press release no mention the promotion of the Catholic faith once?

OCSB Basketball

The basketball institute is based upon the concepts of this one in Orangeville:

http://www.inthehills.ca/2016/03/current/home-court-advantage-basketball-hills/

Topflight will have a private elite classroom inside taxpayer funded NDHS

How will this new Basketball institute enhance the Catholic nature of NDHS in ANY way?

 

PS: where did the Trustees approve this?  There is no record in a ny school board mtg.

#OCSB Update of Religion Class exemption

 

  1. The OCSTA trustees were embarrassed that their website had all the notes and legal opinions saying that the ONLY requirement to get out of religion class is to have your MPAC property tax assessment list the parents as PUBLIC school supporters. They have now removed all the incriminating evidence from their website. Good thing all the OCSTA materials are available here.  😉https://catholicintelligenceblog.wordpress.com/2016/04/05/ocsb-ottnews-ocsta-catholic-trustees-and-avoidance-of-foi-requests/

2. When demanding an exemption from CARFLEO/OECTA Religion classes, please remember to include the notice that no admin, teacher or guidance counsellor should talk in any way to your child about this matter. This is only a matter between parent and Principal. In fact, regardless of whether your child takes religion class or not, goes to Public or “catholic” school, a note should be sent to the Principal etc (and kept on file) that there should be NO meetings with any guidance counsellor and child without a parent present.

Guidance counsellors are often “attack vectors” that divide a parent and child. We have heard several stories about this and felt the need to warn parents.

Dismal #marchforlife showing by #OCSB. #ottnews

A few year ago, several OCSB high schools would use social media to announce their presence at the March for Life. Usually, some of the schools would send 5-15 students. A poor showing.

This year, St Matthew’s was the only school tweeting about the events. We give high praise the 11 students for going! You are wonderful!!

But, 11 students out of 1000 children? 0.1%!?

There are over 15,000 OCSB high school students. Hundreds of them go to see pro-abort Justin at We Day. But March for Life?? Almost nil.

OECTA had their retirement dinner gala last night – at the same time as the Prolife Rose dinner with the Archbishop and others.

St Peter’s had their Oscars evening – at the same time as the Youth Prolife Gala dinner

SPK Teacher Scott Searle (of sending children to Ohio to campaign for Obama fame) and Dr Joe “Chaplain” left for a field trip with children to Boston. Last year, Dr Joe was busy with a “Diversity Day”. The Year before was the Cantley Can drive. March for Life always seems to coincidentally conflict with something. hmmm

All in all, a dismal prolife showing by the Ottawa “Catholic” school board.
