“..we are calling on you to link arms with us, that all Canadians – Indigenous or not, young or old, first generation or tenth generation – that we work together to heal and secure a better future.” - Justice Murray Sinclair, Truth and Reconciliation Committee
Fish Creek School is committed to supporting the Calgary Board of Education Indigenous Education Strategy, and are aware of the important role schools have in Reconciliation. An Acknowledgement of the Land is part of our school gatherings, and our library collection has been enhanced with the addition of new, recommended Indigenous literature. Our teachers have been intentional in ensuring academic programming is inclusive of Indigenous curricular connections.
Occasionally we will highlight this ongoing work, such as visits to the Niitsitapi Learning Centre, in our Student Showcase.
Fish Creek School looks forward to creating more embedded learning opportunities to support Reconciliation through education
