On Monday, June 21st, the Waterloo Region District School Board (WRDSB) is offering a full day of programming available for educators to enjoy alongside their students, featuring Indigenous authors, artists, dancers, Knowledge Keepers, and other special guests who will share their stories, cultures, and insights throughout the day. This will be an exceptional opportunity to spend the entire day participating in exciting learning for all ages, prepared especially for the WRDSB to learn from and celebrate Indigenous Champions of the Present. We hope that staff and students will welcome this opportunity to commemorate this important day in a meaningful and supportive way.
