Dear grade 6 community,
This week we remember those lost, those who continue to suffer and those who are lifting their voices. In class we have shared our responses to the news from Tk’emlúps te Secwépemc territory and the Kamloops Residential School. We have spent time praying at the memorial created by students at HRA in the field, we also wrote Haiku poems to process our feelings. I have included a few resources you might be interested in exploring on your own or with your child. Find the link to the students writing at the bottom of the post.
Peace and grace,
