G.S.A. Club

Our Genders & Sexualities Alliances club (GSA) provides a safe, inclusive, respectful, and welcoming environment for students of all gender identities and sexualities to come together. Students will have the opportunity to explore and discuss LGBTQIA2S+ topics in popular culture, current events and history, both locally and throughout the wider world. The GSA provides students with a safe space to discuss experiences and current issues that are impacting them in their schools and communitie, as well as learn practical skills to navigate the social world.

Your Educator – Sam O’Connell

Born in Vancouver, Sam was raised in Dublin, Ireland. Sam graduated with an honours degree in Biology from the National University of Ireland, Maynooth before returning to Canada. From a young age she has been working with kids of all ages, who were struggling, in and out of the classroom from instructing swimming with Special Olympics Ireland to teaching IT classes in the local school. Through this experience she realised that one method doesn’t suit all when it comes to learning and we need to embrace that! In her spare time Sam can be found skating and playing ice hockey at many of the local rinks around Vancouver. She also loves listening to (and playing guitar to) all kinds of music. Phil Collins is a firm favourite though. Other hobbies include reading biographies and crime fiction books or playing video games. She is excited to bring her experience to BrainBoost!
