Chief's Vlog — Orange Shirt Day & National Day for Truth & Reconciliaiton
Today we recognize Orange Shirt Day and the National Day for Truth and Reconciliation. While there is no school Thursday, September 30 to mark the National Day for Truth and Reconciliation, we hope everyone takes time to learn more about the Indigenous People of Canada and Residential Schools. The below posters, also banners in our Central Office lobby, were created by the district's Indigenous Education team to be used in our schools. Click the links to learn more about some of the Indigenous people in the local community, including district Elder Wanda FirstRider.
