June is Indigenous History Month and it is a time to celebrate First Nations, Metis, and Inuit people. However at HHCS we recently mourned the very sad news about the discovery of the remains of 215 children at a former residential school in British Columbia.
If you would like to talk about this topic some more with your children, here is an article from CBC Kids News that could help you.
Here are some resources to help you to highlight the many amazing things about Indigenous people and community.
CBC Kids is always a great site to visit!
