SECRET PATH WALK – OCTOBER 17TH-22ND
Secret Path Week is a national movement commemorating the legacies of Gord Downie and Chanie Wenjack, and takes place annually from October 17th – 22nd. We call on all people in Canada to use Secret Path Week to answer Gord Downie’s call to action, to “Do Something” by creating a reconciliACTION and furthering the conversation about the history of residential schools. A reconciliACTION is a meaningful action that moves reconciliation forward. ReconciliACTIONs aim to bring Indigenous and non-Indigenous people together in the spirit of reconciliation to create awareness, share, and learn. Our school will be participating by walking around our school field or around the block to have to time to reflect on the children who didn’t make it home from residential school and all the survivors of residential school.
