National Aboriginal Day

To recognize National Aboriginal Day, our friends at Mother St. Bride joined the North Bay Indian Friendship Centre for a day of learning and sharing and classes from Our Lady of Sorrows visited Nbisiing secondary school to take part in interactive activities and collaborative group work. To celebrate National Aboriginal Day during the month of June, approximately 100 Grade 6 students also visited Nbisiing Secondary School this past month as part of an annual retreat to share in a day of workshops and a group pow wow.
