Sackville Heights Junior High

February 3rd, 2023

During the month of February, for Black History Month, we will be playing “Lift Every Voice and Sing”. This hymn is known as the Black National Anthem. It celebrates black excellence and pride in Black communities.

Please remain standing for the acknowledgements

We would like to begin by acknowledging that we are in Mi’kma’ki, the ancestral and unceded territory of the Mi’kmaq People. This territory is covered by the “Treaties of Peace and Friendship”.

We also acknowledge that people of African ancestry have been in Nova Scotia for over 400 years.

Our Sacred Teaching for today is Wisdom
“Knowing yourself is the beginning of all wisdom”.
