Indigenous Awareness and Education Week

September 30 - October 4, 2019

Updated:  October 11, 2019 

The week of September 30 – October 4th was proclaimed by the City of Brandon's Mayor, Rick Chrest as Indigenous Awareness & Education Week.  Throughout the week, our staff and students participated in various activities and learning opportunities to assist us with our goals:

  • All staff and students will be introduced to and/or will re-visit the truth, history and impacts of Canada's Residential School System;
  • All staff and students will recognize that we have a shared history and therefore, an opportunity and a responsibility to work together for our shared future;
  • All staff and students will be able to explain what reconciliation means and why it matters; 
  • Each school will take action by creating a symbol of our commitment to continuous learning and positive change on our shared journey to achieving reconciliation – Act of Reconciliation; and  
  • All staff and students will have a clear understanding of the significance of Orange Shirt Day.


In partnership with the Tipi Tour Legacy Project, our Administration Office installed a Tipi on the front lawn of our property on
Wednesday, October 2, 2019.  Senior Administration, Board of Trustees, Indigenous Language Instructors and staff and students from George Fitton School and members of the Brandon Urban Aboriginal Peoples Council joined together for the official installation and unveiling of the first of three Tipis to be installed on Brandon School Division property.
