Dear Families,

The federal government recently passed legislation to make September 30th a federal statutory holiday called the National Day for Truth and Reconciliation. North Island Secondary School is closed on this day, and will re-open for regular classes on October 1, 2021.

On September 30th Canada marks a day for  everyone to remember and honour all the children who were forced to attend Residential Schools and to those who didn’t make it back home.
