PWPSD staff invited to participate in a virtual Round Dance – Video submissions due May 29

May 12, 2020

In honour of National Indigenous Peoples Day on June 21, PWPSD staff are invited to participate in a virtual Round Dance.

Brigitte Benning, Indigenous Education Coordinator, said the idea came out of a brainstorming session with the Indigenous Liaison team.

“Participating is easy. Staff should send a 10-second video of themselves doing a few round dance steps to the left,” says Ms. Benning. “There is no need to worry about sound or editing; just ensure that the video is filmed vertical/portrait.”

Staff should send their short videos to BrigitteBenning@pwpsd.ca by May 29 to allow time for editing all video clips into a compilation video that will be released on the PWPSD website and social media channels – Facebook and Twitter – ahead of National Indigenous Peoples Day.
