Highlights from this morning’s announcements:
Read first: “I would like to acknowledge that this school is situated upon traditional territories. The territories include the Wendat, Anishinabek Nation, the Haudenosaunee Confederacy, the Mississaugas of Scugog, Hiawatha, Alderville First Nation and the Métis Nation. The treaty that was signed for this particular parcel of land is collectively referred to as the Williams Treaties of 1923 and applies to lands east of Woodbine Avenue. I also recognize the enduring presence of Aboriginal peoples on this land.”
- Girls soccer prcatices this week will be on Wednesday and Thursday after school from 3:30 – 4:15 pm. Thank you and see you there! (Miss Sorin)
- Did you know that Terry Fox’s family have relations to the Metis people? This connection to the Aboriginal People has been released not that long ago. We will celebrate Terry Fox day along with Orange Shirt Day. Let’s take time to pay tribute to these important aspects of our Canadian History.
