Talking to Kids About Residential Schools

As we reflect on the legacy of residential schools, we also have an opportunity to educate children and youth to be future leaders in reconciliation. Take the time to review these resources for talking to children about residential schools and why this is important:  

Truth and Reconciliation Week 2022

The National Centre for Truth and Reconciliation is offering free educational programming for primary and secondary students (grades 1-12).

TRUTH AND RECONCILIATION WEEK 2022 is a national program open to all schools across Canada. This year, our theme is “Remembering the Children”. Join us as we memorialize the children lost to the residential school system and honour Survivors and their families. Learning and commemorating the truth of our history from First Nations, Métis, and Inuit knowledge keepers is an important part of the path to Reconciliation.

This year includes an expanded program with age-appropriate material for students in grades 1 through 12.

Days 1 to 3 feature pre-recorded videos and a live Q & A session. On September 30, students will be able to view a live televised broadcast for Orange Shirt Day from their homes. All sessions will be held virtually on Hubilo. Registration is required to stream live and pre-recorded sessions and to participate in the Q & A segment. Day 4 features an in-person gathering which will stream live for all those who are unable to attend.
