ReconciliACTIONs At Legacy Schools

This past week many of our Legacy Schools took part in Secret Path Week, a week-long event that is held from October 17th to October 22nd to honour the passing of Gord Downie and Chanie Wenjack. Throughout the school year, and especially during Secret Path Week, we encourage our Legacy School educators and students to take part in reconciliACTIONs. These are meaningful actions that work towards reconciliation, creating awareness, learning and sharing to create strong relationships among all Canadians.

We would love to acknowledge some of the great reconciliACTIONs that have been led by  Legacy Schools not only during Secret Path Week but throughout the 2020 school year. We hope their powerful actions  inspire you and those around you to get involved and #DoSomething.

Tom Wilson Appears on DWF Live

@TomWilsonArt  joined us on DWF LIVE just before #SecretPathWeek. That same morning he had been arrested due to his activities at #1492LandbackLane, which led to interesting and meaningful conversation about the affects of colonialism. 

Congratulations to the Legacy Schools Poster Contest Winners!

Early in May, we challenged our Legacy Schools students to design posters that answer the question “What does it mean to be an Indigenous Ally?” They definitely rose to the occasion! We loved all of the posters that were submitted, and it was certainly difficult to select the winners from elementary, middle, and secondary schools. Winners will receive a prize pack from DWF and appear in our Legacy Schools calendar for 2020-2021.
