Grade 5 Students Visit Mayor Pellegrini

Liane Cooke
On Wednesday, the Grade 5 students visited Mayor Pellegrini at the King Township offices. Upon arrival, they were seated in the council chamber. Mayor Pellegrini greeted the students and explained the workings of King Township. Did you know that 60% of all carrots produced in Canada are grown in the Holland Marsh in King Township?
The students then watched a presentation on King Township's green initiatives. Finally, the Mayor chose a student, Liam MacDonald, to put on the chain of office and sit in the Mayor's chair. Very exciting! After a lengthy and informative question and answer period we took a group photo. What a fun and educational excursion this was!

Land Acknowledgment

CDS wishes to recognize and acknowledge the land on which the school operates. For thousands of years, these have been the traditional lands of the Mississaugas of the Credit First Nation. We also recognize the traditional territory of the Huron-Wendat, Anishinaabe and the Haudenosaunee peoples who also shared this land.  CDS respects the relationship with these lands and recognizes that our connection can be strengthened by our continued relationship with all First Nations, by acknowledging our shared responsibility to respect and care for these lands and waters for future generations.
