Board of Trustees Planning

It’s that time of the year, when the Board of Trustees review their work plans, and the Board’s priorities in the areas of engagement, advocacy and communications. The Board of Living Waters values the importance of planning to fulfill their governance roles and look forward to a busy year ahead meeting with all stakeholders and engaging in generative dialogue.

In Honour of Truth and Reconciliation

This week, September 26-30, all of our schools and our Central Office will be making special efforts to acknowledge the histories and legacies of residential schools and to honour the survivors, their families and communities. Our goal is to honour and understand the shared responsibility of integrating foundational knowledge of Indigenous' peoples' perspectives, and to embrace and support Indigenous students' success. Ken Galliot spent part of his day on September 27 with the Board of Trustees sharing his knowledge by facilitating a smudge.

International Day of Peace

September 21st is International Day of Peace. We are called to be instruments of peace. Where there is hatred, let there be love. Where there is despair, let there be hope. In creating a better tomorrow, we must all choose peace.
