Principal's Message

June 4, 2021

Dear Parent(s)/Guardian(s):
In keeping with our commitment to partner with you on matters of importance, I am writing to advise you of an important discussion that was held with students during class this week.  The recent news of the tragic discovery of the burial site at The Kamloops Residential School prompted many questions by students and provided an opportunity to help students understand the issues and build compassion for one another. 
Beddington Heights School students have been given an opportunity to discuss and explore issues connected to the Truth and Reconciliation Commission Report and provided opportunity to share their thoughts, feelings, and reactions.This discussion included understanding the significance of National Indigenous History month, flags being flown at half-mast across the country and Orange Shirt Day. As a school committed to teaching care and compassion, the students were able to discuss what actions they could take in support of the children, families and communities suffering this tragedy. 
Throughout the coming month, we encourage you to answer your child's questions in an open and honest manner and within the context of your families' beliefs and values.  As a school, and a member of the larger Calgary Board of Education community, we are committed to fostering a safe, caring, and welcoming learning environment for all students.  We are also committed to acknowledging and supporting the implementation of the Truth and Reconciliation Commission Calls to Action for a better Canada for all of us.
During the morning of June 21st, Beddington Heights students will be involved in a school wide, in-person smudge conducted by one of CBE's knowledge keepers. Students will be learning about smudge protocol and the significance of smudging to Indigenous cultures before the event. Upon teachers' return in the fall, we will be examining the Alberta Program of Studies in order to make curricular connections between indigenous ways of knowing and subject outcomes.
 Please contact the main office at (403)-777-6610 if you have any questions regarding these conversations, or if you or your family require any additional supports.
Sincerely,
​Brian Hebert, Principal
