Every Child Matters Commitment (June 21, 2021)

In recognition of National Indigenous Peoples Day,

and in alignment with the CBE Education Plan,

Dr. E. W. Coffin School

acknowledges and supports the Truth and Reconciliation Commission (TRC) Calls to Action, and makes the following commitment to action for the 2021-2022 school year:

In addition to honoring National Indigenous Peoples Day, we have also included a moment to reflect upon the 215 lives lost at the Kamloops residential school.  This will be an annual tradition that is integrated into our day that includes planting of 215 orange flowers in our Sun Circle.

In making our commitment, Call to Action # 62 offered inspiration.
