Announcements for Tuesday, October 19, 2021

We begin this gathering by acknowledging that the land on which we gather is the traditional territory of the Haudenosaunee and Anishinaabe peoples, many of whom continue to live and work here today. This territory is covered by the Upper Canada Treaties and is within the land protected by the Dish with One Spoon Wampum agreement. Today this gathering place is home to many First Nations, Metis, and Inuit peoples and acknowledging reminds us that our great standard of living is directly related to the resources and friendship of Indigenous people.  

This week throughout the DSBN and the rest of Canada we honour Secret Path Week. Secret Path Week is a national movement commemorating the legacies of Gord Downie and Chanie Wenjack, and takes place annually from October 17-22. 

All District School Board of Niagara Secondary Schools are Legacy Schools and have been committed to learning and teaching about Residential Schools and the rich cultures of Indigenous Peoples. Together through education, awareness, and connection we can continue on our reconciliation journey.

 

  • Progress Reports are at the Main Office for the students who have not pick up them up yet.
