Stronger Together: Celebrating First Nations, Métis and Inuit cultures, knowledge, traditions
This school year, the Peel District School Board hosted the 3rd annual Indigenous Student Gathering for students that identified as or that shared First Nations, Métis or Inuit heritage and or ancestry. More than 500 Indigenous and non-Indigenous students from grades 4 to 12 attended the gathering over two days.
