Powerful Experience

With shovels in hand, the students of our school went to work Tuesday, Oct. 5, planting 215 trees adorned with orange ribbons — one for each child found buried at the site of the former Kamloops Indian Residential School.
Property owner, Barb Craven, opened the ceremony by welcoming Chief Wayne Christian and gifting him tobacco which he offered in the “four directions” as he gave thanks to the land.
Christian then thanked our LWMS students for their act of recognition. Students put into action the concept of being an ally. It was a powerful day!
