The CDSBEO held its annual board-wide Indigenous Education Day on Wednesday, May 17. This year’s theme was ‘Growing Change’ from a First Nation, Métis, and Inuit perspective, through our relationships and understanding of each other, ourselves, and the natural world. Among many activities, a focus of the day for elementary schools was the book ‘Be a Good Ancestor’ and the Ohénton Kariwatékwen (commonly referred to in English as ‘The Thanksgiving Address’) for secondary schools.
To support the theme of “Growing Change,” schools were also asked to work together to spell out the word CHANGE and photograph it from above. Our schools did a wonderful job with this activity, and we thank them for their participation!
