Indigenous Veterans Day - November 8

November 8th is a day marked to honour the contributions of Indigenous Peoples to the Canadian Military.

"Did you know that First Nations served in the Canadian Military at a higher rate than any other group in this great nation? More than 4,000 Indigenous people served Canada in the First World War. In fact, First Nations, Inuit and Métis people served Canada in all the great conflicts and peace support missions of the 20th century."

Greetings all

As we enter the fall season, I hope that you and your family are maintaining a sense of health and happiness, and navigating this current wave of illness moving through our community.  I witnessed first hand the effects of being unwell for the first time in 3 years when I went down for 6 days last week with a nasty bug.  Now as others on our team, and in our school population are also experiencing illness, it invites in each of us the opportunity to extend our compassion outward into the world.
