During our October Professional Development Day, we will start participating in an ATA project titled ‘Walking Together – Education for Reconciliation’. The first workshop in the project is ‘Understanding the Legacy of Residential Schools’. As a staff, we hope it will build upon the knowledge we have developed in studying the Truth and Reconciliation Committee Summary Report. A few years ago I published a blog called Can You Imagine… – I invite you to click on the link and give it a read.
Throughout the next few years, in the spirit of reconciliation, we will be making ‘Education for Reconciliation’ a priority in our professional development plan.
