The Secret Path Film: CBC

Posted: November 22, 2016

Echoing the TRC's Calls to Action regarding education, New Brunswick has set an educational goal of teaching 100% of NB students K-12 about residential schools and treaties by 2025/26. To support this goal we have decided to share Gord Downie's (lead singer of The Tragically Hip) animated film "The Secret Path" (click blue title to access website). This film is based on the true story of Charlie Wenjack, a First Nation student who died during his escape from a residential school in Canada. Please advise, contents are emotionally sensitive and may not be suitable for younger audiences. For more information about and support with teaching about residential schools and or treaty education, please contact any member of the First Nations Education team for ASD-N.

* Note: The first hour of the video covers the entire album/animated film, the second hour covers a panel discussion on reconciliation.

Dear Educators,

October is Mi'kmaq History Month! If you haven't already had a chance to incorporate some lessons about the Mi'kmaq people this month, here's a general powerpoint. We realize that it is late coming and that you may not have time to deliver the presentation, however are hopeful that it serves as a starting point for planning future lessons and units about the First Peoples of this land.

Wela'lioq, Thank You,

Katrina Clair

Hello K- 3 Educators,

Please help us promote orange shirt day with your little ones. Orange shirt day is on September 30th and is a day for honouring residential school survivors. The attached PowerPoint DOES NOT go into detail about the harsh realities that survivors experienced, rather, gently reminds us that EVERY CHILD MATTERS.
