PLEASE NOTE – A new national holiday, National Day for Truth and Reconciliation, has been added On Thursday, September 30th. All SD62 schools and buildings will be closed to commemorate the history and ongoing trauma caused by residential schools and to honour those who were lost and the survivors, families and communities who continue to grieve. Our school year calendars have been updated (below).
For this year, there is a Ministerial Order that alters the instructional hours to accommodate September 30 being a day off. Future years are yet to be decided.
Join the nation on September 30th by wearing orange, reflecting on the truth of our shared history and supporting rich and diverse indigenous communities and neighbours. Many schools will be organizing specific activities that week in recognition.
