Center for Multicultural Affairs
What it does: We all have a lot to learn and gain from working with people of all colors, ethnicities, economic classes, and perspectives. The Center for Multicultural Affairs is here to help all HB students become comfortable with themselves and knowledgeable about others so they thrive in our multicultural world. The Center also serves as a support for faculty and staff as they seek to develop as multicultural educators and create an inclusive community that embraces and celebrates individuality and difference.
How to join: Contact Mrs. Seals to discuss your interest in joining or taking a leadership role in developing programs, clubs or activities designed to support and validate the experiences of individuals in the HB community.

- TRUST: Transforming Relationships to Unite Students Together (for Grade 6) – Aims to heighten awareness, increase cultural competencies and skills, and create a more inclusive environment.
- School-Wide Activist Group (SWAG): This student-led group is committed to educating girls to become activists in identifying and addressing equity and social justice issues.
