Orange Shirt Day – Monday September 30th 2019

On Monday September 30th 2019 we honoured Orange Shirt Day at Ecole Central. It is a day where we pay tribute to all those who have been affected by the wrongs of the residential school system and honour the survivors. Through our assembly and in classes students also learned about the word “reconciliation” which means to make things better. There is no way that we can undo the pain caused through our history, but reconciliation is a step towards hope and healing.

The main idea behind this day, is that “EVERY CHILD MATTERS”

Congratulations to our three soccer teams that participated in the District Tournaments last Thursday/Friday.

Terry Fox Run 2019

Thank you for your efforts in helping to make our Terry Fox Run 2019 a success. Even though the weather did not cooperate, we appreciate how everyone made the best of things indoors. As a school we raised $2311.85. This means we will be able to send $1155.93 to both the Terry Fox Foundation and Adaura. It is also impressive that in total over the years Central has been able to raise $47 617.80 for the Terry Fox Foundation which is the most in the District. Thanks again for all your efforts towards this cause.
