Truth and Reconciliation at Centennial School

Centennial School students and staff share the message of Truth and Reconciliation!

Students and Staff wore their orange shirts throughout the week of September 27. Teachers shared "The Orange Shirt Story" by Phyllis Webstad and colored pictures of an orange shirt.  Some students wrote pages of “My pledge to Remember and My Pledge to teach the Truth”. 

Each class also went outside to hang ribbons on the fence in memory of the Kamloops' residential school students found.  Classes who walked on Wednesday, September 29 had the opportunity to learn about the history of the Peace Cairn at the water tower and why the city is named Wetaskiwin.

Throughout the week staff and students colored a tile in memory of students in residential schools. The tiles will form a mosaic to be placed in the foyer. 

Truth and Reconciliation is every day at Centennial School as we fulfill “The Calls to Action” supporting children to have the best education.
