Today the KIS students participated in Indigenous Day Activities. Throughout the afternoon students celebrated different Indigenous cultures with activities including smudging, learning about the medicine wheel, beading, drumming, building inukshuks, playing Lahal , and enjoying bannock and black current juice. Students and staff also contributed to our new mural every child matters by signing with a hand print. The mural on the side of the school represents our commitment to promote a growing understanding of Indigenous peoples in B.C. that will contribute to the development of educated citizens who reflect on and support reconciliation. We finished the afternoon with a traditional plains Cree round dance. Many of the staff and students also wore orange today to honour the children who were victim of residential schools.
