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.”
- There is a basketball meeting at morning recess in front of the gym.
- February is African Heritage Month at the TDSB and we are proud to recognize the experiences, contributions and achievements of African Canadians. This year the theme is Out of many are one: Across differences our commonalities uplift our African Heritage, culture and people.
- February is Chinese Heritage Month at the TDSB. During this month, we celebrate the energetic culture and traditions of the Chinese community with students, staff and community members of the TDSB and the City of Toronto. The Chinese community is integral to the growth and success of the City of Toronto and Canada. Members of the Chinese community represent approximately 10% of the total GTA population and form its second largest visible minority group. Canadians remember and appreciate the Chinese workers who helped build the Canadian Pacific Railway that united our country
- A message from the Eco Club: We hope you have been having lots of winter fun. It’s important for our health to get outdoors and be active, even in the winter. We hope you a have been enjoying playing in the snow, skating, hockey, skiing and looking for winter birds. Thanks for listening!
