Some photos from our Wenjack Walk from last week.
Thanks to all involved for supporting our Indigenous Leadership and Social Justice students in this act of Reconciliation. 💜
A big shout out to the 50 plus classes around the district that registered and participated in Take-Me-Outside Day on October 20th. Congratulations to Tonia Larson-Gagne, your class is the lucky recipients of some outdoor supplies from the Outdoor Learning Store.
On October 20, Huband Park Elementary School hosted Canada's first ever Downie-Wenjack Breakout Box game with Bobbi Carter's grade 5 class. Students learned the story of Chanie Wenjack while using clues from his story to unlock the Boxes. The Downie-Wenjack Legacy Schools Foundation promotes reconciliation and provides learning materials for schools that foster awareness about residential schools in Canada. This is the first Breakout game inspired by the story of Chanie Wenjack in the country.
The SD71-School Cycling Program has been in full swing for grade 4/5 students across the district. Thank you to the Comox Valley Cycling Coalition for all their volunteers and expertise.
Thank you to the Glacier Alliance Club for their kind donation. Through collecting food and donations at meetings, the Glacier Alliance Club chose to support School District 71 students, and our breakfast, lunch and healthy snacks programs in our local schools. We are very grateful.
Huband Park students raised money last year to pay for a rainbow crosswalk to celebrate diversity and welcome all to our school. Thank you to Derek from maintenance for his creativity!
