September 30th marked the first National Day for Truth and Reconciliation. Students wore orange shirts to honour the victims and survivors of residential schools. It was a day to listen, reflect and learn about Canada’s past, in hopes of a better future for indigenous people. To commemorate this day, high school students planted an orange sugar maple tree in honour of the lost children and the survivors of residential schools, their families, and communities. A few of our elementary students got to be a part of this new tradition at Town Centre by helping to complete the planting of the tree.
