Land Acknowledgement

Land Acknowledgement LLP 2022 (SME) FINALE (1).mp4

In January 2022, the Grade 6 ICF students began working with Indigenous Knowledge Keeper Margaret Cranford to create their own land acknowledgement as part of a Lead Learner Project for NLESD. During this process, students learned how the environment has a lot to teach us about taking care of the earth and each other. As we wanted this land acknowledgement to represent ALL of our St. Mary’s school community, we worked with parents, students and friends so that it could be presented in many languages. We invite all of our school community to make these commitments with us.

St. Mary's Elementary School is a part of the Newfoundland and Labrador English School District and currently has an enrolment of approximately 180 students and offers Grades Kindergarten through Grade Six.

St. Mary's Elementary is a neighborhood school that is situated as our school song states, 'snug in the valley' of the Waterford River. It serves the area of St. John's bound on the south by Southside Road, the west by Road DeLuxe, the north by Cornwall Avenue/Fitzgibbon Street, and the east by Shaw Street.
