Principal's Message

Every Child Matters and National Day for Truth and Reconciliation

​September 30, 2021 is the first National Day for ​Truth and Reconciliation. School will be closed  to honour the occasion. Therefore, we will recognize this day and Every Child Matters (Orange Shirt Day) on ​September 29. Students and staff are invited to wear an orange shirt to recognize Every Child Matters - a day that acknowledges and honours those who died in and the survivors of residential schools.
​Part of Peter Lougheed School's commitment to the Truth and Reconciliation Commission is to work towards reconciliation through education. It is important for students to learn about residential schools, Treaties and relationships between Indigenous and non-Indigenous Peoples.
Teachers have prepared learning experiences to thoughtfully engage students and build background knowledge about residential schools and develop a deeper understanding of the impact of the trauma that residential schools caused to Indigenous children and their families. 
As part of Orange Shirt Day students will reflect on their own understanding and write their thoughts and ideas on a strip of orange surveyor's tape. Each student will tie their tape on to the fence surrounding the school yard. This will be a visible representation of Peter Lougheed School's commitment to reconciliation within the Saddleridge Community. Each orange strip waving in the wind will represent a current PLS's students reflection and acknowledge the lost souls of students who died in residential schools and those that survived the experience. 
There is much learning to be done and some students and staff have begun to take steps and make committed actions towards reconcilation and others have yet to begin. Every Child Matters and the National Day for Truth and Recociliation is an invitation to reflect, learn, and take action.​ We invite the PLS learning community to walk alongside as we make this journey together.
Kathy Salmon, principal​
