RESPECT CAMPAIGN: SEPTEMBER FOCUS: INDIGENOUS CULTURES AND TRADITIONS

RESPECT CAMPAIGN
Montreal - Wednesday, October 6, 2021

For the month of September, Willingdon launched its RESPECT Campaign with its first monthly focus, Indigenous People and Cultures.  Throughout the month, united in learning, celebrating and honoring Indigenous people.  Together, we read books, participated in classroom activities/projects, attended workshops, took part in field trips and marches and raised money.  The month ended with taking part in Orange Shirt Day and the first National Day for Truth and Reconciliation.  On that day, two of our very own students, Tristan and Claira Chiasson, gathered with their family and thousands of others at Place du Canada for a commemorative march and ceremony to mark the first National Day for Truth and Reconciliation. Our entire school community is so proud of them and feel honored to have had the chance to take part in this very important day, alongside them.  As a school, Willingdon will continue this journey of growing and learning together in solidarity.
