Remembrance Day Service
Tyndall Park School held a very special Remembrance Day service on November 10th to honour and remember our veterans. Students from room 10 performed the wreath laying ceremony in the gym while the rest of the students and staff viewed the service via live stream in their classrooms. Each classroom decorated and designed their wreaths while learning about the many veterans who served in the various branches of the Canadian Armed Forces. We thank those students from room 10 for their participation and also to Phys. Ed Teacher, Ms. Dow, who performed 'The Last Post' for the service.
Truth and Reconciliation Day at Tyndall Park School
On September 29th, students wore orange shirts to show respect to the survivors and families of residential schools. Classes discussed the significance of the orange shirt and why we observe September 30th as the Day of Truth and Reconciliation throughout the month. An outdoor assembly took place in the afternoon, where the Principal, Mrs. Mospanchuk, spoke to the students about the importance of the day and what it means. A moment of silence was held to reflect and consider how we can each participate in reconciliation. Our handprint art around the school was in conjunction with the lessons that took place in classrooms and the next day of observance.
Terry Fox Run
On October 1st, students at Tyndall Park School once again participated in the Terry Fox Run. The beautiful weather allowed classes to run outside in their designated fields to remain within their cohorts. We thank Tyndall Park families and students for their generosity and support for this worthy cause. Together we were able to raise $480.60 to donate to the Terry Fox Foundation!
Tyndall Park School HeartWork
Tyndall Park School students have been working on a collaborative piece of art around the hallways of the school. Each student had the opportunity to put their handprint on a window to represent the victims and survivors of residential schools. Students have been learning about Truth and Reconciliation and why we take a day to remember and honour the families affected by residential schools. Some classrooms have also discussed the 94 Calls to Action and learned about ways they can participate in reconciliation. The hearts above and below the Medicine Wheel show locations and the number of unmarked graves discovered at each place. So far the total across Canada is estimated at 3,200. On September 30th we hope our students and families take the day to reflect and are able to participate in some of the events and activities taking place throughout the city.
