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.”-

Lunar New Year – Spring Festival (Buddhism/Confucian/Daoist) 

This day is a very important day for many people all over the world. This day marks the beginning of a new year for people of Chinese, Korean, Vietnamese and Mongolian ancestry. Many followers of Buddhism, Confucianism and Daoism also hold these days important for its symbolism of renewal. Governments, businesses and markets use the Gregorian calendar to regulate the days but use the lunisolar calendar to mark cultural and traditional days of significance such as the New Year.

For many in East Asia and South East Asia, the Lunar New Year is associated with spring and regardless of one’s location it is always marked with great community festivities, gathering of families and feasts.
