National Day for Truth and Reconciliation

BVG News

By: Fiona Fenili, Director of Teaching and Learning, Prep School

Originally published in the October 2021 Glen newsletter.

Recently, the Government of Canada passed legislation to make September 30 a federal statutory holiday called the National Day for Truth and Reconciliation. This day

will recognize and commemorate the legacy of the residential school system in our country.

page5image1098864576

At Bayview Glen, this day will serve as a day of remembrance, reflection and action. All students will participate in learning modelled on Indigenous pedagogy. Students will participate
in lessons focussed on all four aspects of the Anishinaabe sacred circle: spiritual, physical, emotional and intellectual. Our youngest learners will explore Mother Earth knowledge, family connections and walking on the land. Older students will look at the perspectives of First Nation, Métis and Inuit Peoples, and the importance of learning from Elders, and will investigate treaties and residential schools.

As part of our commitment to action, Bayview Glen is honoured to donate all proceeds from Orange Shirts purchased through the Parent Association Shop to the Woodland Cultural Centre’s ‘Save the Evidence’ campaign. This campaign will ensure that the former Mohawk Institute Residential School is fully restored into an Interpreted Historic Site and Educational Resource.

Through thoughtful and meaningful educational opportunities, we aspire to create a new relationship with all Indigenous Peoples of Canada — one based in honour and deep respect for their cultures, languages and significant contributions

to our country. Learning about the truth of our history and recognizing the historic and present-day importance of contributions of Indigenous Peoples are the first steps towards reconciliation.
