September 30 - National Day for Truth and Reconciliation - No School but the Learning Continues - Thank-you to Alumni Donors
Thursday, September 30th is the first National Day for Truth and Reconciliation in Canada. Although this is an EPSB board declared holiday, the learning necessarily continues on this day - and every day. September 27-29 at LaZerte has included a virtual smudge by our cultural liaison and Kokum Veronica Graff, personal meaning statement sharing related to the Circle of Courage key foundations of belonging, mastery, independence and belonging, the making of bannock by some of our First Nations, Métis, and Inuit youth, and an overwhelming degree of participation in Orange Shirt Day. Teachers also incorporated a Truth and Reconcilliation focus to in-class lessons and shared a ceremony live-streamed by EPSB.
We are also fortunate to have M.E. LaZerte alumni recognize that what was learned when they were in high school was insufficient to what is required to advance Truth and Reconciliation and begin to fulfill our obligations as treaty people. A key focus of the Truth and Reconciliation Commisison’s Calls to Action is that of education. A re-connection to some of our Lazerte, settler alumni was made through our maintained networks, and we are deeply grateful that the following organizations (which LaZerte alumni own or work for) and the personal donations of others, has led to a collective donation of over $2000 to further enhance our LaZerte library, First Nations, Métis, and Inuit resources - a source of wisdom that we’ve been working hard on rejuvenating and expanding over the past few years. Thank-you to Civeo for contributing nearly half of this amount. We commit to using these resources for deeper, meaningful learning, sharing this learning with the donors below, and encouraging them to intentionally step into this vital learning as individuals and within their workplaces.
