From the introduction of the Truth and Reconciliation Commission's document:


"There is an emerging and compelling desire to put the events of the past behind us so that we can work towards a stronger and healthier future...The truth of our common experiences will help set our spirits free and pave the way to reconciliation."

We would like to acknowledge that our school is on unceded Algonquin Territory and thank the Algonquin Nation for hosting us on their land.
