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."

Preparing for Winter Trip

This morning we arrived at school in the usual way.  Some of us were driven, some walked, some took the bus.

But our Valhalla Wilderness Program students woke up at school, in their tents, at -6 degrees!  They looked none the worse for the wear.  Their snow kitchens set up and trying to get a warm breakfast cooking.

This is a trial run to prepare for their winter trip February 22nd to 25th.
