National Day For Truth and Reconciliation

September 30, 2021

In recognition of the National Day For Truth and Reconciliation, all of our students and staff have been learning about Indigenous perspectives and culture.  Some of these learning activities included sharing circles, classroom treaties, viewing and discussing video clips and a variety of art work.

 

Mr. Kroetsch’s Grade 2 class painted orange rocks and read a fabulous book on the topic of Orange Shirt Day.  Ms. Moyer’s Grade 5/4 class lead an assembly which shared the history of residential schools in our country.  Staff and students also wore orange on September 29, 2021 in honor of this significant day.
