Mural Title: Love Means No Gender

posted Jun 19, 2019, 12:18 PM by Ruth Teszeri   [ updated Jun 20, 2019, 1:46 PM ]

This mural represents a message of hope:  hope for acceptance, hope for a cleaner, less polluted future, hope for diversity, and hope for a better world to live in.

There are many symbols in this mural; the coexist logo that is spelled out by different genders, religions and identities with the melting earth symbolizing global warming. The different colored flowers that represent different pride flags are my favourite hidden message in this piece.  Each flower lei represents a different pride flag; Gay, Bisexual, Pansexual, Transgender, and Asexual.  Each ‘hidden message’ in this mural is there for a reason. I like to believe that this mural will carry on as a symbol of acceptance, diversity, love, and hope, even after I’ve graduated from high school.

Warm Weather and Tick Precautions

posted May 23, 2019, 8:19 AM by Ruth Teszeri   [ updated Jun 19, 2019, 12:11 PM ]

The warm weather brings an increase in the activity level of adult ticks across Halton Region. Information from the Halton Region website  provides recommendations for anyone taking part in outdoor activities in wooded areas or fields with long grassy areas, in order to minimize and detect exposure to ticks.

Wear:

  • light-coloured clothing, so it’s easier to see ticks

  • closed-toed shoes

  • long-sleeved shirts

  • long pants, tucked into your socks

After being outdoors, check for ticks on yourself and your children. Look:

  • behind your knees

  • on your head

  • in your belly button

  • in your groin area

  • in your underarm area

  • on the back of your body – use a mirror, or ask someone to check for you

Should you find a tick on you or your child, please follow these steps to remove and submit the tick to Halton Region for testing.

For further information about ticks in the area, and how you can limit exposure to ticks near your home, please visit the Halton Region website.
