Once again this year our students are learning about The Seven Sacred Teachings. The Seven Sacred Teachings are values based in First Nations cultural tradition that reinforce the teachings of our Catholic faith. Each teaching honours one of the basic virtues to help us to live a full and healthy life: Love, Respect, Courage, Honesty, Wisdom, Humility, and Truth. Each of these Sacred Teachings is represented by a different animal and provides practical and positive traits for use in our everyday lives.
Every child in our school will be celebrated for demonstrating one or more of these teachings during the school year. This will happen during our monthly Awards Celebrations.
Mme Fader's class led the Celebration Monday by reminding our students about what they have learned about Respect. According to www.thesharingcircle.com, respect is the condition of being honored. No animal was more important to the existence of Indigenous families than the buffalo and its gift provided shelter, clothing, and utensils for daily living.
Congratulations to the following students who were awarded for displaying Respect:
