September 29, 2021 – Commemoration of Truth and Reconciliation Day
Students gathered together for special cultural celebrations for the first annual Truth and Reconciliation Day. Activities included creation of clay tiles that reflect our understanding of history and reconciliation, preparation of a traditional meal, participation in traditional games, and drumming. We were honoured by a visit from a local elder who celebrated the day with us.
