🥳 We are SO PROUD of our new friend and Global Villager, Kim Gyeong-Hyeon! 
She has started her English journey at GV1 only recently and is already becoming more and more confident in her English skills!

She was kind enough to share some thoughts on her experience in her first language, Korean, AND her new second language - English!

🧡 Friday, Sept. 30th is the National Day for Truth & Reconciliation in Canada - a time to recognize the legacy of the Canadian Indian residential school system. It is also an occasion to learn more about Indigenous history, culture, stories and world views.

As we at Global Village navigate our own paths to truth and reconciliation, we take this day off from regular activities so that staff, students and host families have the opportunity to participate in authentic community events hosted by local indigenous groups; to engage in quiet reflection; and to deepen our learning.

There are five events you can attend in the Victoria area, including Xe Xe Smun’ Eem–Victoria Orange Shirt Day: Every Child Matters Ceremony developed by residential school survivor Eddy Charlie (pictured here).
