Event description

Description

In partnership with Prince of Wales, the University of Calgary and Elder Randy Bottle, we would like to formally invite the parents/guardians of the students at Prince of Wales to join us in an evening of learning on February 28th, 2019. This event, which we have termed an Elder Panel, would provide parents and guardians with an opportunity to hear stories and teachings from Elder Randy, among others, to educate our community on how we can move towards reconciliation together. The intention behind this service learning project is to move the work of reconciliation beyond our current work in the classroom to engage the community as a whole. Topics on the evening will include: the acknowledgement of the land, smudging and a discussion about the purpose of a smudge, residential schools and to discuss what reconciliation is and why it is an important narrative being discussed in our society.

This is an adult only event and no childcare will be provided.

This is a closed event for the parents/guardians of Prince of Wales Elementary students only.
