EMS Truth & Reconciliation Commitment to Action 2021-2022

​Dear EMS Community,

To acknowledge and support the implementation of the Truth and Reconciliation Commission Calls to Action, the staff of EMS has created our "EMS Commitment to Action" for the 2021-2022 school year.  All EMS staff members contributed to the creation of this action/document in order to advance truth and reconciliation in our school and in our community. 

At “THE" Ernest Morrow, we commit to improving the knowledge and understanding of Indigenous history and culture among all staff members, and we will do this by providing meaningful professional development opportunities and stewarding resources accordingly.

This knowledge will allow our staff to provide the information and truth that is necessary to come before reconciliation to our students in a purposeful way. Our teachers will commit to bringing into focus “two-eyed seeing" where we uplift and encourage Indigenous knowledge systems alongside Western ideologies for the benefit of all students. Through this approach, we also commit to improving the achievement of Indigenous students and the creation of a safe and caring environment where this learning can take place. This allows all students to build empathy and cultural understanding resulting in actionable allyship.

The overall focus of our commitment is to encourage an inclusive and holistic learning environment where healing can take place and all students will find balance within their mind, heart, body, and spirit.

Thank you,

Kevin Godfrey
Proud Principal
"THE" Ernest Morrow​
