Grade 6

January 18th-22nd

Dear Grade Six Families,

The children had an opportunity to experience Mass as a class this week. Even though we were not  physically able to be in the Church, it was wonderful to be together as a community.

On Friday, we recognized Black Shirt Day in support of anti-racism. The students watched a video about the unfortunate George Floyd incident last year. We also talked about the most poignant worldwide examples of racism and discrimination over the last 60 years. It was a heavy topic and we hope that you had a good discussion with your child regarding this very important time in our history. We ended our talk watching the video “I Have a Dream” speech by Dr. Martin Luther King Jr.  His very famous words still resonate today: “I have a dream that my four little children will one day live in a nation where they will not be judged by the colour of their skin but by the content of their character.”
